Van Life: Exploring the Northwest with Two Dogs, a Cat, and a Van
Sarah Leamy, author
The housesitter backed out only days before the planned departure, so Little Stevie would be coming with them after all. Three months, two dogs, and one cat: What could go wrong? With her two friendly pups, and a somewhat feral cat called Stephen, Sarah explored the backroads of the Northwest. Passing through Colorada, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, this little family stumbled across little rural villages, lakes aplenty, and many a microbrewery, chatting to the locals along the way. Sarah's stories remind us of Bill Bryson, The Tao of Pooh, and Blue Highways, in a unique blend of anecdotes of the people met, historical facts, and aided by just a little imagination. Sarah Leamy is an award winning novelist, a freelance travel writer, and photographer. Van Life was named Grand Winner and Best Nonfiction in the 2017 Great Northwest Book Contest.
