About the Author

Al and Sunny Lockwood have traveled by foot, car, rail, air and cruise ship. They've camped in national parks, hiked mountain trails, photographed springtime flowers in Death Valley and wintry surf along the rugged beaches of Northern California. They've watched July 4th fireworks over Lake Tahoe, explored the Taos Pueblo and ridden the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad through forests ablaze with autumn colors. From North Carolina's Outer Banks to New Orleans' Burbon Street and Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, they love to wander and wonder and enjoy. And everywhere they go, they capture unforgettable moments -- Al with his camera and Sunny with her reporter's notebook -- to share with their readers. Their work has been published in magazines and newspapers. It has been recognized with awards from the National Federation of Press Women and the California Newspaper Publishers Association, Their first travel memoir, Cruising Panama's Canal, was a finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards. Their travel memoir, Cruising the Mediterranean, won the gold medal for adult nonfiction in the 2016 Wishing Shelf Book Awards, and was named the best nonfiction book in the 2016 Seven Sisters Book Awards. It was also a finalist in the 2017 Best Book Awards competition. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
