In the summer of 2012, my son Gen, pedaled 2,755 miles on a unicycle (alone) to bring awareness to the problem of human trafficking and to raise funds for the Polaris Project. Gen’s path followed the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route from Banff, Canada, to the Mexican border. 88 days after he started the trek, my husband and I picked him up at the Mexican border. I made this woodcut for Gen to present to the first 40 contributors of $100 or more.
