Van Life: Your Home on the Road (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
With hundreds of funky vehicles, awe-inspiring landscapes, and cleverly designed interiors in tiny spaces, Van Life is perfect for anyone who dreams about living on the open road.
More and more, people of all generations -- from millennials to baby boomers -- are taking a break from conventional life for the freedom, tranquility, and adventure of being on the road and living in a converted vintage truck, camper, or van.
One of these van-dwellers, Foster Huntington, created the #vanlife hashtag as he chronicled his adventures of living in a van and driving it across the country. He tapped into a community of like-minded individuals looking to explore nature at their own pace and live a debt-free lifestyle.
Van Life showcases the best crowd-sources photographs from Foster's social media accounts -- many of which have never been posted or seen before. Organized into sections like Volkswagen vans, American vans, converted vans, school buses, and more, the selection of photos includes shots of the unique vehicles and the beautiful locations they've been parked. From stunning beaches to dramatic mountains and picturesque forests, and with fully designed interiors with kitchens and sleeping quarters, this stunning array of life-on-the-road-possibilities might just be enough to get you to pack up your things and hit the highway.
Also included are informative and topical interviews with solo travelers, couples, and families who are living this new American dream.
