But go he does. And toMorePete Daniels is fifteen. At first, he would rather hide under a rock than take a three-week driving vacation throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with his family--mother, father, younger brother, and even younger sister. But go he does. And to his amazement he learns almost everything there is to learn about Pennsylvania and the art of traveling--while having fun! By combining the enjoyable fiction of Petes personal story with a real look at Pennsylvania through the familys eyes, and with many archival, resource photographs, the author imparts volumes of interesting information to the reader: historical figures, geological formations, religious sects (Amish, Ephrata Cloister, Mennonite), mushrooms, the Concord Grape Belt, Civil War battlegrounds, the Liberty Bell, and more.... This is a book for every motorist whose car becomes a vacation-time, family magic-carpet. It is for Pennsylvanians particularly, for every child growing up in the commonwealth. It is a must have for school and public libraries, for civic and business groups and for the Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce.
