On Sept. 23, 2004, T. Lawrence "Doc" Mishler, along with horses Chief Spirit and Faith and canine companion Good Dog, ended his several-thousand-mile horseback journey from Choteau, Montana, at the doorstep of Bread for the World, a Christian organization in Washington, D.C., that works against hunger. Mishler has been riding the back roads of America since June 2002 to raise awareness about world hunger. (At right, Jim McDonald, vice president of Bread for the World.)
