Salt Lake City, UT – Do you have memories of your family road trip? You know - vying for territory in the back seat, driving through that huge tree in California. Today on RadioWest we're talking about the golden age of the family vacation. Historian Susan Sessions Rugh has written a book about it, a kind of cultural history. She joins us to talk about what we got from that experience, and what the decline of this ritual tells us about the changing patterns of family life. (Rebroadcast)
