Dear Bob and Sue is the story of Matt and Karen Smith’s journey to all 59 U.S. National Parks. Written in a series of emails to their friends, Bob and Sue, they describe their sense of awe in exploring our national parks, and share humorous and quirky observations. The writing style is inspired by Bill Bryson’s work and the couple’s often contrasting impressions of the parks makes for many laugh out loud moments. The national parks are among the most stunning places in America – pristine wilderness, geologic wonders, and magnificent wildlife – places everyone should put on their must-see-before-I-die list. Matt and Karen take you along as they visit them all. Unlike a traditional guidebook, this is one couple’s perspective on the joys and challenges of traveling together. This is a story of discovery and adventure: chased by a grizzly, pushed off the trail by big horn sheep, they even survived a mid-air plane collision.
