Publisher Comments:

The four travel essays brought together in this volume represent the trips taken by one family living in the huge metropolis of New York. Two of the trips were planned vacations, and two were impromptu weekend visits to get away from the confinements of city life, and its reminder of the pressures work.

In these essays, we get an insight into their motivation for travel, its impact, and the reaction of one member of the family.
