Summary Peter Hudson and his family take a tour of the United States and he paints pictures of what he sees. It is a sort of wonderful dream vacation a family might take in the family car, with a good balance of sight-seeing in places like Boston, Chicago, Washington, of camping in Maine, games in the high corn, snowballing in the Rockies, visiting a pueblo in New Mexico and a ranch in Texas, seeing the great trees of California and the inside of a motion picture studio, thrilling to the glamour of the Miami airport, the shipping of the Great Lakes, the beauties of desert and national parks; and finally, coming home joyously to Connecticut
