This warm and thoughtful story about a father and a son on an all night drive to the mountains is just right for Father's Day. Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
As father and son drive into the night, they watch the sunset, talk about baseball, sing cowboy songs, and even change a flat tire before pitching camp at daybreak.
In this picture book set in the 1950s a father and son drive through the night as they travel towards their mountainside vacation spot. During their journey they share stories, listen to the baseball game on the radio, and keep a lookout for huge 18-wheeler trucks. Illustrated with b&w drawings.


Kirkus Reviews
"While adults may appreciate this look at an uncomplicated childhood, younger readers will find the text soothing and the parent/child companionship reassuring." 09/01/1996

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Coy's text indicates the closeness of father and son and the suppressed excitement of the boy at the adventure he's having with his father. Reminiscent of both early Van Allsburg and Gammell, McCarty's pencil illustrations are compelling combinations of light and shadow..." - Janice M. Del Negro December 1996

New York Times Book Review
"Mr. McCarty's subtle black-and-white pencil drawings, which elegantly complement Mr. Coy's text, are as vague and hazy as night and memory both, and tenderly evoke the father-son relationship at the heart of this book....There's not a forced or false moment....Mr. Coy's prose is spare but not without feeling..." - Sam Swope 12/22/1996
