5.0 out of 5 stars ONE MAN'S FAMILY, WHAT A FAMILY! WHAT A BOOK & DVD., March 13, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Ride of Our Lives: Roadside Lessons of an American Family (Hardcover)
My wife read this book and told me about it, then we watched the DVD which accompanies the book. Change of pace reading for me from history or westerns, and a very refreshing one indeed.

While the book and DVD have some poignant segments, it is equally balanced with some outright comical segments. Mike Leonard's parents and the entire Leonard clan are pleasant to meet and this inside look into a zany, lovable group of people is one the reader will not soon forget. Come on, read it. I didn't think I'd care for it, either; but I loved it.

This book should get an award for not only its great American family profile but for its inventiveness. There are still real people out there and the foundations of the real America still exits.

Hats off to one of the more enjoyable reads/views I've ever experienced.

Well recommended. This book will restore any doubts one may have about our country.

Semper Fi.
