I saw the Johnsons present their travel movies when I was very young. My grandparents took me, and the book was on their on mine. I love this book and have read it many times. The story of their romance is charming, and her courage at a young age is amazing. You may often see it in decorator/design magazines, because of the beautiful zebra print cloth cover.
