THE RIDE OF OUR LIVES Roadside Lessons of an American Family

by | Read by Marc Cashman

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Leonard, a "Today Show" correspondent, hits the road for a month in two RVs with three of his grown children, a daughter-in-law, and his octogenarian parents. They journey from Arizona to Rhode Island with colorful stops in the Louisiana bayous and the Biltmore estate, to mention just a few. The really colorful items, however, are the parents, the garrulous, optimistic father and the vituperative, doomsdaying mother, and Marc Cashman brings each of them to life. He makes Leonard sound like a regular guy and enlivens his parents' worn jokes and family stories. In short, you feel as if you're along for the ride. Have fun.
