On the Road with Roz: Adventures in Travel and Life (Paperback)
For the past eight years Chicago television Traffic Anchor Roz Varon has been recording her travels in words and images. This book is designed to be a keepsake for those readers who enjoy vicarious adventures, and for those who seek ideas for their own trips across the U.S. and in foreign lands. Written with honesty, enthusiasm, and a grateful sense of wonder, Roz and her family enlighten her audience with little known facts, humorous anecdotes, and heartwarming insights into her personal life. We are Roz's awestruck travel companions at the inauguration of President Barack Obama, students of history while roaming the Jewish Deep South, and gleeful visitors to Walt Disney World - which our author considers "The Happiest Place on Earth."
As we venture to other continents, we move through sacred places in Israel, joyous sites in Ireland, and legendary landmarks in the southern United Kingdom.
Perhaps the most fun we have with Roz and her family is the traveling the famous Route 66, a treasured Americana road trip that will surely have readers packing their maps and bags.
While all appears sunny and careful in these pages, we also learn that Roz Varon is a more than 10-year Metastatic Breast Cancer Survivor. This medical facts adds poignancy, courage, and inspiration for all those whose lives have been touched by the illness.
