This husband and wife team has made a pass-time of "following the hood of the car" and "going where the propeller leads". They have traveled on three continents, by car, mountain bikes, light airplanes and even ultralights. The Long Road of Summer is their first journey on motorcycles. It begins as a gentle recovery jaunt from a heart attack and rolls on and on as the road ever beckoning takes them over the next hill ... from Ohio to the Rio Grande and to the Grand Canyon, then through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and Idaho and through the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean. Finally they ride through Alaska, the Yukon, British Columbia and the Canadian Prairie.
An abundance of pictures take the reader into the action and the scenery. As the pages turn, the reader builds a genuine companionship with Julia and Pierre-Louis and feels sadness and loss when the last page is read.
