[Story]

Originally heard on All Things Considered and Morning Edition, the stories gathered here are entertaining, provocative and moving.
Like Laura Lorson’s “Hard-Earned Lessons from the Family Road Trip,” in which she recalls endless hours in a hot car, eating junk food and listening to AM radio. And “Setting Sail with Family, Imperfections in Tow,” Marion Winik’s account of a not-so-perfect family reunion at sea. And “Family Camping,” in which commentator Joel Achenbach points out that camping is a serious sport.

With generous splashes of popular culture and human interest, the NPR Road Trips series introduces you not only to far-off locations and unusual destinations, but to the people who inhabit them—and seek them out. Each story focuses on real locations, real people, and real history in the thought-provoking, imaginative and entertaining way you’ve come to expect from NPR.

“This wonderful and frequently laugh-out-loud-funny production will soon have you planning your next vacation, even if it's just to the Ponderosa—for which your mom has a coupon.”
—AudioFile

“Their memories, which run the gamut from fond to awkward, will bring smiles to listeners’ faces. Recommended.”
—Library Journal
