|Plot Summary of Ribbons of Highway: A Mother-Child Journey Across America|
|"The summer after September 11, a globetrotting writer and her two kids set off on a 12,000-mile road trip through their own country, discovering its majesty and humanity. They journeyed along back roads and byways, meeting people in America's downtowns and proud, quiet places. They explored the nation's outdoors, from one ocean to the other - bayous and rivers, deserts and mountains, forests and great lakes.
As they traveled, they learned about their country and about themselves, exploring the love and respect, sometimes subtly or silently manifested, that bind a mother and her two growing children to one another.
"Ribbons of Highway" is a celebration of America, family, and the freedom to pursue dreams and adventure."
Lori Hein, Resident Scholar
