Summary Erma Bombeck takes on the unforgiving frontier of American suburbia For years, the Bombecks have heard rumors of a magical land called Suburbia where the air is clean, the grass is trimmed, and children don't risk getting mugged on their walk to school. After watching their friends flee the city for subdivided utopias like Bonaparte's Retreat and Mortgage Mañana, Erma and her family load up their belongings and cry, "Station wagons . . . ho!" But life on the suburban frontier is not as perfect as they had hoped. The trees are stunted, the house is cramped, and there's no grass at all. But the Bombecks will make do, for they are suburbanites now-the last true pioneers! This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
