This page provides details about the pictures that comprise the slideshow. A link to the slideshow itself is at the bottom.
I picked the photos to represent various elements of the book. The pictures here fall into three categories:
- Actual photos of or by Patsy or Virgie; taken at the time of the story
- Pictures we took on our 2011 “book trip” in which we retraced the route taken by the girls in 1939
- Pictures, gleaned from various other sources, of people, vehicles, and locations evocative of episodes in the book
In the description of each photo, I identify the category to which it belongs. Click on any picture to activate a “Carousel” which you can scroll to see the descriptions.
The score accompanying the slideshow comes from a wonderful source for royalty-free music, http://www.incomptech.com. The site has thousands of musical offerings indexed by type and mood. All they require is that you give credit when using a piece. I chose Living Voyage by Kevin MacLeod because for me it evokes the feelings of mystery, adventure, and discovery I tried to portray in the book.
