No Ordinary Lives
One Man's Surprising Journey Into the Heart of AmericaBook - 2002
Twenty years ago, cub reporter David Johnson had an idea for a column: he'd pick a name at random from the telephone book and write a story on the person who answered his call. Visiting journalist Charles Kuralt overheard his plan and proclaimed it the best idea he'd ever heard -- and the popular column "Everybody Has a Story" was born. Today, over 800 Americans have shared their personal stories in the pages of the Lewiston Morning Tribune, and for David Johnson, the trip of two decades has taught him lessons he never imagined. In this book, you'll meet many of the people whose perspectives changed David's life. Not only have they reminded him of life's "universal ingredients, " the hopes and dreams we all share, but they've commented, each in their idiosyncratic way, on what is truly important.
