    Great Travel Companion

    This book details ten of the best road trips in Missouri. The author provides a great narrative for each excursion. I love his style. Take the book with you on your outings and you'll have a great travel companion. Each trip is detailed with interesting information about unique places to eat, area history, and the lovliest little places to stay.

    As a Missouri native, I've learned many new things about my home state. I would recommend this book to both current residents and future visitors of the Show Me state.
