A touching coming-of-age memoir piece set in 1949. Burma Shave signs, milkshakes, Civil War monuments, movies, diner food, Shady Court motels, Conoco stations, and the summer heat mark the way as family drives from Chicago across Iowa and Nebraska to Lander, Wyoming. A Southern belle mother and her college professor husband spend the summer closed in together in a two-door Ford with their ten-year-old daughter who tries to figure out life and ignore the signs that she’ll never take this ride again.
