Dear Bob and Sue chronicles our journey to vall 59 US national parks, written as a series of emails to our friends, Bob and Sue.
This book is not a guidebook to the national parks with eloquent descriptions of scenery, although many reviewers have said they use it as a guide when visiting the parks.
It doesn't have pictures, maps, table of contents, vampires, paranormal fantasies or walking dead characters.
Instead, these emails to Bob and Sue, written over a span of two years, contain random observations about the parks we visited, the people we met and what we ate for lunch.
Some of the consistent themes are Matt's OCD (he claims there is no "D"), squirrels, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and beer; with a mid-air plane collision and being chased by a grizzly bear thrown in for excitement.
People have said that reading the book made them feel as if they were on the trip with us. We would love for you to join us on our journey to the national parks. If you enjoy the book please tell a friend.
Matt and Karen Smith
