Carolyn Cassady Revealed

in Poetry and Prose.

Carolyn Cassady's European Travels

     Carolyn Cassady, wife of Beat icon, Neal Cassady, delightfully documents her first longed-for trek “across the pond” to Europe.  Not until she was in her mid-fifties was she able to fulfill a dream she’d nurtured her entire life, one she gratefully shared with their middle child, Jami. The fun, and often challenging, experiences they encountered during their pre-tech 1979 journey are described by Carolyn in Travel Tips for the Timid, or What Guidebooks Never Tell. Notes from Carolyn’s handwritten travel diary are interwoven throughout, as well as her charming illustrations. A coded link is provided for readers to access the beautiful color scrapbook Carolyn created upon returning home.  Despite the fact that a similar journey undertaken today would be enhanced by technology, the tips offered and descriptions of the beauty they observed can still be appreciated. Join Carolyn and Jami on a historical joy-filled ride through Europe.
