Oregon Rancher Crosses US on Horseback

An Oregon rancher who set off on a cross-country horseback ride seven months ago in search of what's good in America finished his trip feeling encouraged by the spirit and stories of the people he met. Bill Inman began his journey June 2 because he felt distress over how the country was being portrayed in news coverage and on TV shows. He rode his 16-year-old thoroughbred-quarter horse Blackie. Inman finished his trip riding into the southwestern North Carolina town under overcast skies. A crowd of more than 100 people greeted Inman at a motorcycle dealership as he ended the journey.
