    Easy reading,but sparse content

    I enjoyed the ideas, but it was for very few locations in Arizona, I was looking for a lot more areas of Arizona to investigate.

    More Than Just Kicks on Route 66 - Take Arizona Backroads and Byways

    If you are looking for a quick read, and a concise guide to Arizona hideaways, the Backroads and Byways of Arizona, by Jackie Disher, will guide you to a fabulous destination. I've lived in Arizona over 30 years, and have not seen some of the places Jackie Dishner has so wonderfully described. Her view of Aravaipa, descriptions of Zane Grey's Rim Country and photos throughout the book are warm and inviting. This book reminds me why Arizona is such a multi-faceted, unique state, and I need to see and experience more of it. What a wonderful Christmas gift this will make!
