About the Book

Driving Miss Norma: One Family's Journey Saying "Yes" to Living

If you need reassurance that it’s never too late to begin an adventure in life, or a reminder that good, caring people exist in every corner of our country, you’ll want to read DRIVING MISS NORMA.

At the age of 90, in the same hospital where her husband of 67 years had passed away just days earlier, Miss Norma received the news that she had uterine cancer. Making the decision to decline traditional cancer treatment, Miss Norma opted instead to live the remainder of her life to the fullest, traveling the country in an RV with her son Tim, his wife Ramie, and their poodle, Ringo. Miss Norma’s spirit can be summed up in the response she gave to her oncologist: “I’m 90 years old. I’m hitting the road."

Come along for the ride of this unforgettable cross country journey, as Miss Norma blossoms before our eyes from shy and timid to daring and vivacious, embracing with zest many “firsts” in her life: hot air ballooning, Mount Rushmore, an NBA game, zip lining and more. You’ll be moved by Miss Norma’s courage to live life on her own terms, and the stories of countless strangers who opened their hearts and homes to her along the way. This book will inspire you to say YES to living.
