to get some sense of this nation

I think it was then that I realized that it wasn't Mount Rushmore or any other big tourist attraction that was going to turn me on. What was going to fascinate me were purple flowers on the side of the road in Wisconsin that screamed out, "There are colors that you thought were only made up by painters."
"We encountered zero black people in our 14 days, zero Asians and two Latinos." The Rockwells tell the New York Times about their 14-day RV trip around the U.S., timed "to catch our daughter at the very end of her childhood, to enjoy a family experience before she escaped forever into the dreaded wasteland of teen-dom."
