Just in time for Valentine's Day, author Theresa L. Goodrich presents "Two Lane Gems, Vol. 2: Bison are Giant and Other Observations from an American Road Trip"
Celebrate your love of the Great American Road Trip at this unique reading and book signing at Three Embers.
Meet the author, have your book signed, and hear about this unforgettable American road trip from the Chicago area to the Oregon coast and back. Enjoy a signature Valentine's Day cocktail and learn how the intrepid couple managed to travel for 35 days and 6,832.9 miles without killing each other.
Their journey began in front of a dumpster, but they quickly made their way to a UNESCO City of Literature. Over the next 35 days they camped in National Parks, State Parks, and RV Parks. They stayed in hotels, motels, a cabin on a lake, and a 1913 Gambrel cottage-style mansion. They followed scenic byways, highways, two-lane roads, the Outlaw Trail, the Oregon Trail, and the Lewis & Clark Trail, hitting the highlights – and the low-lights – of America’s westward expansion. With a thirst for knowledge and frosty treats, they searched for, and found, what makes this country beautiful and unique.
waved at mermaids in Montana
slept with bison – and survived
met a man named Lizard
stepped on the center of the universe
almost stepped on the center of the U.S.A.
escaped a rattlesnake – twice
chased an eagle
did not degrade the surface
did not kill each other
In this epic, eyes-wide-open love letter to America, little is planned, much is ventured, and everything is gained.

For your reading enjoyment, by the founder of The Local Tourist:
"If John Steinbeck earned a Nobel Prize in Literature shortly after publishing Travels with Charley, then Theresa should start planning a trip to Oslo, Norway, because Two Lane Gems is every bit the book Travels with Charley was. And then some." ~Amazon review
