Sinossi

Travelling through every state in the USA is something few people will ever achieve, even those residing in that country, and certainly not in the style of Mavis Gore and her husband Jeff.

After Jeff had a quadruple heart bypass, following which most would succumb to a peaceful early retirement, the couple instead decided to repeat a journey across Canada which they had taken in the early years of their marriage; but this time in a hired motor-home. However, they had not anticipated the return trip through the northern states of the USA would start them on a seven-year exploration of all the 48 lower states, together with ‘Harvi’ the second-hand motorhome they purchased.

Told with good humour and honesty the book recalls their experiences during their travels, vividly capturing the incredible variety of scenery and weather throughout the immense country of America, while also conveying the warmth and friendliness of the American people in every state.

This is the real America, not the USA via Hollywood and TV. It is an America hidden from most of us, ready to unfold as we travel with Mavis and Jeff on a road-trip which eventually includes visits to the two final states and then the couple travelling in New York State on that fateful day of September 11th 2001, with a poignantly descriptive account of the aftermath following the attack on the World Trade Buildings.

The personal interaction between Mavis and Jeff on their travels conveys warm humour (with just occasional agitation!) but most importantly and decisively it reflects a great upbeat and defiant attitude to life in general.

A wonderful book for all those who love to travel. Mavis Gore has written a travel diary in story book fashion describing her and her husbands adventures throughout the 50 states of the U.S. Their travels in "Harvi" are well described and include a history lesson as well as a bright outlook on life and the people one meets along the way.

I really enjoyed this travel memoir, about an English couple who have traveled to all 50 states in America, most of them in a motor home named Harvi. The author, Mavis, (wife of Jeff, and half of the couple that the book is about), includes bits of history, nice descriptions of scenery, and quite a lot about points of interest along the way, and the end result is a fun and interesting book to read. I also found some of the ways that words were used in the book interesting. For example we would say campsite, but Mavis calls it a pitch.

I enjoy camping and could relate to their experiences at the various campgrounds they visited.

The only thing that bothered me about the book were the frequent references to Jeff's disagreeableness. Quite frankly, I was sick of Jeff by the end of the first trip. I'm sure he's not at all like I picture him to be, because if he was, the first trip would have been the last. And if he is, I applaud Mavis for maintaining her positive attitude.
