Adventure in 1944

The Lure of the Open Road. Wartime wandering through the Eastern states by bicycle, truck, and riverboat 1944. By Thelma Popp Jones, 2007.”

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Thelma Popp Jones’ account of the adventures she and her friend Doris Roy enjoyed riding their bikes from New York to the Ohio and the Mississippi rivers and working as maids on a boat. (There’s a map and lots of photos, too.)
