Spanning the United States are a network of roads that have been largely supplanted by more modern, bigger, and infinitely duller interstate highways. This book is about exploring these backroads and their hidden treasures of the American experience. Helping you explore this realm of the semi-forgotten are 100 maps and a lively slew of sidebars and facts. Twelve cross-country journeys spanning the United States are featured. So well written it’s readable/browsable for its own rewards. A must-have for planning that ‘looking for America’ (or ‘escaping America’) ride. By Jamie Jensen. Softbound, 5.5"×8.25", 784 pp., b/w/c illus.
