Award-winning author Lori Stewart’s latest book Travels with JJ
, is a charming, lighthearted account about rescuing a litter of newborn orphan puppies, raising two of them, Jenny and Jeffrey (JJ), and traveling with them across America to visit old friends in fondly remembered places. They drive from California to Maine and back, while listening to the “Great Ideas of Philosophy.” Along the way, they explore the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest; the wild-open spaces of the Mountain West; the Great Plains and Great Lakes of the Midwest; and the coastal settlements and farms of the Eastern Seaboard. They learn about the lifecycles of mayflies, lodgepole pines, horseshoe crabs, and kelp; and begin to understand the ecology, regional history and cultural landscape of this vast, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful country.
Travels with JJ is a book for dog lovers, road trippers, adventurers and armchair travelers. Readers gain valuable insights into US history, geology, philosophy, fauna and flora, and the “caprices of beloved dogs.” It’s a witty, lighthearted, easy to read style, with 70 gorgeous color photos, and is available at Pilgrim’s Way.
