Road trips have always appealed to me. One reason for this appeal was my mom's love of driving, which took us on trips across the West. My mom was very proud of the fact she bought her first car - a '38 Chevy - when she was 20 years old. Her own mother never did learn to drive. To my mother, a car meant freedom and opportunity and that attitude rubbed off on me. Road trips - especially long road trips - an offer time to contemplate life and plan for the future. The freedom of driving and making a road trip can have great significance in a person's life.

In searching for road trip titles, I found a perfect juvenile nonfiction book that shows how driving affected women like my mom:  Motor Girls: How Women Took the Wheel and Drove Boldly into the Twentieth Century by Sue Macy.

Here are some other interesting road trip titles:
