Synopsis

'He pulled a cassette out of the glove box and put it in the stereo, pressed rewind and then play. Was it still 1980 in Memphis? Some fast-paced blues crackled out of the speakers.' *************** 'The guide book said it was 'well worth making the trip to this colourful outdoor market'. It was a market of just fruit and nothing else. It was time we stopped listening to the crap guide book recommendations...time to find our own way.' *************** Dog Days is a lively account of a three-month road trip that Andrew and his girlfriend Lucy took around the United States. They drove 15,000 miles around 45 states, by car and Greyhound bus, known as the 'Dog' by the fearsome locals who ride it. Follow Andrew and his girlfriend Lucy through landmarks including Monument Valley and Yellowstone, to a New York Yankees baseball game, a dude ranch in Montana and a rodeo in Wyoming. More than just a travel memoir, Dog Days provides vivid descriptions of the physical landscape, and unravels the characters they encountered along the way -- with some very candid observations of America and its people.

They began their trip believing they knew a lot about the country, but quickly discovered just how different from the rest of the world it really is.

Born in Australia in 1972, Andrew Thompson lived and practised Law in London for 12 years, before embarking on a three year world tour that has taken him to 32 countries, including all of the habitable continents. He thought he knew a lot about America and its culture, but during a three-month road trip around the United States, he found it to be vastly different to what he expected. Spawned from the American road trip, Dog Days is his first travel memoir.
