When Lou Schell and her husband Fletcher first read Charles Kuralt's America, the two were captivated by the stories of his travels and the people he met along the way. The Schell's began planning their dream trip: a year-long Odyssey tracing Kuralt's route around the country, visiting his favorite U.S. locations during their most scenic seasons. They would spend time in each town he'd chronicled, perhaps even meeting some of the characters he'd described so vividly. Fletcher's sudden death put an end to that dream for awhile, but Lou couldn't shake the feeling this was a trip she was supposed to take. At the age of 77, Lou Schell gathered her children to her home on a Sunday afternoon and presented them with the news: she would be spending the next year traveling America - and she would be spending their inheritance to do it. Her children's response? "Go for it." While Lou began the trip with her 72 year old sister Janie, Janie was unable to complete the trip. Undaunted, Lou continued on alone. For the next several months, she drove from city to city, staying a full month in each location for so she could fully experience its culture, people, food and ambiance. In the pages of Revisiting America you'll join Lou as she shares a courtyard--and snacks--with Iggy the Iguana in Key West, dines at The Fat Hen restaurant in Charleston and takes an intrepid stroll across a mile high swinging bridge in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Join this ever-young adventurer as she milks life for all it's worth, making friends from New Orleans to Taos, and Boothbay Harbor, Maine to Ketchikan, Alaska, and proving to everyone who hears her story that it's never too late to follow your dream.
