Local Author Teams with Barber RV for Book Signing
Santa Barbara CA– J.R. Swaim, a local Ventura author, avid adventurer and Recreational Vehicle (RV) enthusiast has released the second book in his series “As the 5th Wheel Turns,” Swaim will be signing books at the Santa Barbara RV Show. The show runs from June from June 24 through 27 and is located at the Earl Warren Fairgrounds in Santa Barbara.
The author, in cooperation with Barber RV of Ventura, will be appearing Saturday June 26, 2010 at 10 A.M. at their RV display within the show grounds.
Swaim has completed two books on the subject of “reality of life on the road.” The reader is invited to “hop in the back seat of Blue,” the trusty diesel powered tow vehicle and travel along with the adventurers. However, these are not the average travel logs. The books contain the day to day exploits, misadventures, and zany situations encountered by long term road rogues traveling in a zig-zag escapade across the country. They seek hidden treasures that lay throughout the country waiting to be rediscovered, and places that the average two week vacationer misses or doesn’t have time to visit.
Book 1 – “As the 5th Wheel Turns – In The beginning” deals with the two travelers setting out in their newly acquired modern day Prairie Schooner, chuck wagon and party mobile, affectionately known as the ‘Hiker’ and roaming the country “just like the pioneers” did it! Along the way they learn the ropes of a life on the road that is filled with unexpected adventure. (Publish America ISBN 1-60563-314-3)
Book 2 – “As the 5th Wheel Turns – The Sophomore Year” is a continuation of their travels in their second major outing. The book covers the Swaims seven month exploration that criss-crosses the country and gives them the opportunity to meet many fascinating people throughout this land, as well as walking and talking with past U.S. Presidents, living and dead. The ride takes a turn into the lands of the great Native American leaders of the past; giving the reader the chance to experience the country they loved and called home. The travelers sojourn along the way into the National Parks. It’s a winding, twisting ride through time! (Xlibris ISBN 978-1-4500-2800-4)
J.R. Swaim invites you to “sit back and enjoy the ride” without ever leaving the comfort of your favorite chair. It’s time to hit the road… Let’s go!
