Trespassing across America: One Man's Epic, Never-Done-Before (and sort of Illegal) Hike along the Keystone XL Pipeline

Trespassing across America: One Man's Epic, Never-Done-Before (and sort of Illegal) Hike along the Keystone XL Pipeline

Please join the Department of Cultural, Environmental, and Global Studies and McKillop Library for a talk with author and Ken Ilgunas.  

"In 2012 and 2013, I walked nearly 2,000 miles across North America, following the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline, from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Gulf Coast of Texas. On my journey, I encountered stampedes of cows, charging moose, and climate change deniers. My adventure, which was featured in NYT, Huff Post, Mother Jones, CBC News, Men’s Journal, and more, is the world's first modern journey across private property, on which I trespassed over one of the most ignored, yet beautiful, regions of our continent—the Great Plains. I'll talk about the people of the heartland, the right to roam, and the stories that form the basis of my book, Trespassing across America. " - Ken Ilgunas
