The CRUISE of the BOUNCING BETSY
A TRAILER TRAVELOGUE by J. N. DARLING
In BOUNCING BETSY you jump over the hummocks of trailering with Ding Darling the great cartoonist and humorist. The trailer, now a national delight as well as a problem, needs no introduction. Ding Darling, conservationist and out-of-doors enthusiast, needs one even less.
Whether you tour in a trailer yourself, are going to tour in one, or merely take pleasure in rocking-chair trips—you will find BOUNCING BETSY a rubber tired re¬ lease from care over little known roods through little traveled country; an authen¬ tic tale so zestful, original and humorous that you have to read on—all the way from Des Moines, Iowa, to "the small, pictur¬ esque island of Captiva," (Florida) "with the windows on one side looking out on the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico" and, on the other side, "through tropical vegeta¬ tion."
If you don't buy, rent or steal a trailer after reading this, you will buy, rent or steal your next door neighbor's. You will! That's all there is to it.
