Wow- I just finished reading this fascinating double memoir, of a 1956 cross-USA bike trek by a woman, then a 1996 cross-USA bike trek by her daughter, retracing the route. The discoveries of places and towns which stay the same or are forever changed made for an interesting read. What courage these woman had! If you like adventure, even armchair adventure, this book is superb.

I appreciated Peggy and Brian's switching off to give details of their shared experience, interspersed (what a word!) with her mom June's recollections of her own cross-country cycling adventure 40 years earlier. As an interesting gender reversal, Brian seemed to talk the most about how he felt, with Peggy's reports being more factual (although she does make it clear she's far from blind to her mother's ... ummm ... controlling nature); June was single - though travelled with an acquaintance - and rather a party animal, giving her accounts quite a different perspective.
