Where the Hell is Tucumcari
Travel with Mary, her minister husband and her family as they leave the posh community of Beverly Hills to serve a small church in New Mexico, a world away from the atmosphere they had known in California. The way of life, the climate, the scenery, the food...all so different. Interesting and unusual characters filled their lives every day as they lived and worked among a wonderful panoply of people. Enjoying historical Route 66 as their main thoroughfare created many delightful stories told in a relaxed, humorous way.
