Drifting in the Push is a fast-paced, comical romp that takes the reader on a journey through the unintentional adventures of one man's reality. From the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, from Mexico to Alaska, missteps, stubborn obstacles, and fate are his constant companions, along with an offbeat assortment of entertaining characters. From time to time, his escapades include his two childhood friends--Bryan, who follows him to the unforgiving Arctic, and Shane, who steers him down an unpleasant alley or two. Amid this craziness, he picks up another friend--Hank, his devoted dog. This chronological series of interdependent short stories will take you from fear to love, amusement to surprise, and it just might occasionally leave a tear in your eye.

Reviews

"Garrison, a restless college student, puts an often hilarious modern spin on On The Road in this gonzo tribute to young wanderlust and overcoming difficulties through grit, determination, and humor" - Publishers Weekly"Daniel Garrison's Drifting in the Push is a loosely organized, fast-paced memoir, tracing the author's manic, comic adventures on the road less traveled...The writing is excellent. Garrison's prose is clean, funny, and often touching. It's difficult to tell how much (if any) of the book is fiction and how much is a memoir. Doesn't matter - the stories have the authenticity one attributes to real events, and the narrative drive associated with the very best fiction." - Rabbit Hole Reviews"A memoir that reads more as fiction than reality, this adventurous trek of one young man will inspire readers to go out there and take a chance on their futures. Adventure is just around the corner if you'll only follow it!" - Tragically Dull Adventures of an Almost Librarian"Don't think, even for a minute, that this book is boring. Every story in this book is engrossing. They are chronological stories, starting from Daniel's childhood. Even as a child he's had interesting experiences. I was constantly being amazed by the different states he's lived in and the different situations he's been put in...A sequel to this book is in the works. When it releases, I will be first in line to buy it." - This is Lit"This memoir is a collection of funny, sometimes kind of insane stories. As Dan grows up, he faces danger, theft, and cross-country moves. His traumatic experiences make for good entertainment, although he probably didn't see them that way at the time!" - Newbery and Beyond"I found it refreshing and light-hearted at times, in addition to down to earth and realistic. It's quite fantastical, yet honest." - The Incessant Bookworm -Garrison, a restless college student, puts an often hilarious modern spin on On The Road in this gonzo tribute to young wanderlust and overcoming difficulties through grit, determination, and humor- - Booklife

Great Title. It’s almost hard to believe this guy went through all these adventures. I enjoyed his adventures in Alaska, but I really liked his college stories – they reminded me a bit of my own antics back in the day. It’s a very flowing story with plenty of laughs.
