Of the many individuals in the United States with an interesting past as well as a bright future ahead, one individual stands out to the rest due to his interesting perspective of the world as well as due to his interest in connecting the United States and educating individuals across the country about the different demographics in the country that are often forgotten.

For the past several years, Doug Levitt has traveled one hundred thousand miles on the Greyhound bus to meet interesting people and to hear the stories that they have to tell about their past.
