Summary

Summary

A difficult older woman comes to terms with herself and her grown son on the back of a motorcycle named the Dove, on an arduous journey through the backroads of memory and the American West. Trail of the Dove is full of ruby sunsets and starry nights, roadside neon and steaming expanses of desert wildflowers after a cloudburst, blue spruce and wheeling hawks viewed from the sheer drop of a narrow mountain road, and weather suitable for King Lear. Like Lear, Dorothy Friedman must do battle with the eclipses of advancing age, and learn to trust the love of her grown child. This is a powerful and quirky road memoir - and the last hurrah of a lifelong uppity woman.
