BY MEN OR BY THE EARTH is the story of the corporate lawyer who walked out on a six-figure salary, prestige, and a troubled relationship to walk across America with his dog. Coulson and his dog Mabel fought off bears, grifters, and psychotic drivers. They suffered heat waves, tornado outbreaks, injuries, and near death experiences. They saw the best and the worst of America. This is the brutally honest story of a flawed man struggling to survive in a flawed system and of the unshakeable bond between a man and his dog.
Coulson’s story has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the Des Moines Register, and various other national media. His story and dramatic departure from corporate law deeply touched people across America.
