The 444-mile Natchez Trace

In March 2014, Andra became one of the only living persons to walk the 444-mile Natchez Trace. 15 miles a day. 6 days a week. For 34 days. The Rotarian Magazine profiled her in its January 2017 issue as an ordinary Rotarian doing extraordinary things. She did the walk to launch her debut novel To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis, but ended up having a life-changing adventure with her 80-year-old father. It inspired her NY Times best selling memoir Not Without My Father: One Woman's 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace.
