Overview: This book tells the true story of an adventure road-trip around the USA in one year. On this journey, the second of three adventures, a UK couple travel from Chicago to San Francisco, exploring the Yellowstone super-volcano and encountering bears, elk, moose and whales along the way. They travelled west through the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean up through Canada's Cascade Mountains and then south, through the giant coastal redwood forests, to San Francisco. ‘Wild Summer’ tells of the trials and tribulations of the voyage.
‘Tornado Spring’ is the true story of the first adventure travelling up the eastern side of the USA during the worst tornado outbreak in US records.
‘Desert Winter’ (due for release in summer 2012) describes the journey across the southern states where they cross three deserts, Death Valley and have close encounters with wildlife including a bear and a rattlesnake. They find out what it feels like to experience urban boondock camping in New Orleans.
