Backroads of the Great American West: Your Guide to Great Day Trips & Weekend Getaways (Back Roads) (Paperback)
Filled with full-color photography, instructive commissioned maps, and advice from regional travel experts, Backroads of the Great American West is the best one-stop source for road trips that avoid eight-lane expressways and crowded tourist destinations.
Forget what you think you knew about nation’s greatest road trips. Backroads of the Great American West gets you off the Interstates and beaten paths with all the necessary information to take on dozens of great drives. From the dizzying snow-capped heights of the Rocky Mountains to the vast expanses of the desert Southwest, from the lush Pacific Northwest to sunny Southern California and the California coast, the great western American road trip is perhaps the most quintessential of American road trips.
Inside, regional experts—historians, travel writers, and photographers—curate their favorite road trips and their scenic, historic, and cultural attractions, as well as advice on what to do and see along the way. Each is accompanied by color photography and a description of the drive and its attractions. Commissioned maps trace the routes.
Backroads of the Great American West is the ultimate compendium of the West’s most rewarding and unforgettable routes—and making unforgettable memories.
