Doug and Mary Powell have three children, all married, and four grandchildren giving a family circle of twelve. In this book we meet seven of them. Two live in California but for the others this was their first visit to America. We read about the people they met, the places they visited, the laughs they had. It's a happy, relaxed story with fascinating comparisons between the American and British ways of life. This all started as a private personal diary, a written record to accompany the mountain of photos Mary took. Then Doug wondered if the family might also like to read it. He showed what he was doing to his cousin Maury, a retired newspaper editor, who immediately saw the potential. "This is good stuff. It deserves a much wider audience than just the family. Carry on writing, finish the draft, then take it to a publisher." So here it is.
