Overview

Why would patrons throw popcorn at a woman while dining in a lobster restaurant in Bar Harbor, Maine?
Kevin and Sherri ('Quilter Girl') Parsons embarked on a 50 state motorcycle journey and while traveling, wrote short stories that took place in each state. Most are fiction, some historical, and a few are non fiction. Each volume contains ten states, ten stories. Some are motorcycle stories and all take a look at American culture in each state. This first book includes the states that border on the Great Lakes and the Northeast. What makes Pennsylvania different from Vermont, Indiana and New York? Follow American lives in Amish farming country, on a sailboat in Lake Michigan with murder and intrigue, and a kid as he attempts to go over Niagara Falls. Spend the night with two kids who decide to break into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Ohio. Experience a boy's first love, both of the Mississippi River and a pretty girl in the 50s. Roar with laughter at Harvey Messman's antics at the Beer, Brat and Cheese Festival in Wisconsin. What a great way to see America and her people, through the imagination of the author who visited every state, riding a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle.
