Last month, four friends picked me up
in a two-door Jeep and we drove across the country. From the Atlantic to the
Pacific we watched America change. Starting in the crowded atmosphere of New
York City, we traveled to the lush farms of Virginia, to the desert plateaus
and flatlands of Texas and Arizona, to the beach paradise of California. There
is something akin to magic in the good old-fashioned American road trip. Our travels
were truly an unforgettable experience, which brought my friends and I even
closer than we already were. I hope these books will inspire you to use the
rest of your vacation days and make the 3,000-mile trek too.
