The Hollings on the Road

Joan Hoffman was kind enough to send along a picture from the past.  She notes, “Holling and Lucille were traveling around the United States gathering material for future books.  This picture was taken Aug. 19, 1937, during a newspaper interview in Seattle, Washington.
 
“Holling talked about how they lived off the land during their trip.  In one of Holling's letters he talked about the white cat they are holding.  This cat always slept on their bed at night.”
 
Most cats never like to ride in a car so it’s surprising that it rode so well on the Hollings’ extensive road trip.
