When Gayle Harper learned that a raindrop falling into the headwaters of the Mississippi would travel the River for 90 days to reach the Gulf of Mexico, she knew immediately that her project of a lifetime had appeared. Harper made a 90-day road trip along the nearly 2,400-mile course of the Mississippi, while keeping pace with the raindrop called “Serendipity.” She was offered lodging, often in places unique to the heritage of each region. There was a fishermen’s cabin in the north woods, a trendy downtown loft, a tugboat converted to a B&B, a plantation mansion, a sharecropper’s cabin-and even an entire 30-room mansion! Roadtrip with a Raindrop is a celebration of America and the simple moments that make life an adventure. In its 240 pages are 55 stories, with nearly 200 full color photographs. Together, the words and images invite us to leave our agendas behind, to travel at the pace of a raindrop and to rediscover the fine art of letting life happen!
The book is Gold Medal winner in Readers’ Favorite International Competition and an Award Winner in Foreword Review’s INDIEFAB “Book of the Year.”
It has also won the Clarion Award from the National Association of Women in Communications.
