Flo Haynes reviewed the book Dont Make Me Pull Over! An Informal History of the Family Road Trip, by Richard Ratay for Mondays Unity Club meeting.
The book chronicles the tradition of family road trips. Ratay refers to when his family did most of their traveling during the 1970s as the golden age of road trips. This was a time when road trips were at their best, before air travel became affordable.
Although the descriptions of his familys road trips were entertaining and worthy of rekindling memories among his readers, Ratays ability to dive into the history and trivia of a multitude of topics associated with road trips gives his stories added depth.
