The Last Road Trip [4.9.2009]

Ruth Morris’ father, Ian Morris, was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2002. He didn’t want to die in Boston, where he’d spent his last few years – he wanted to die in California, the place he knew as home. Ruth talks with Dick Gordon about how her family decided to drive a van across the country to help her dying father find the warmth and landscape he loved. Also in this episode, Alissa Braatz spent three summers looking for adventure and summer work in Petersburg, Alaska.
