Overview

 

Backroads of Arizona guides you into the heart of the state’s natural sun-scorched beauty and fascinating history. Here are scenic drives and adventures taking you off-the-beaten path to stunning landscapes and breathtakingly beautiful country—the multi-colored buttes of the Painted Desert, the snowcapped San Francisco Peaks and forests of majestic ponderosa pines near Flagstaff, the deep blue waters of Lake Havasu on the state’s western border, and the rolling grasslands where antelope and cattle roam free.

 

With twenty-three driving tours in all corners of the state, this book also offers insight on the Arizona’s rich history, from when Spanish conquistadors sought the legendary cities of gold to the Wild West shootouts in Tombstone’s OK Corral.

 

With maps and directions to the Grand Canyon State’s most unique geographic, historic, and cultural attractions, you can explore Anasazi cliff dwellings, hike to see a mountainside of cacti in bloom, or get your kicks on Route 66.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Phoenix Magazine, January 2007
“Backroads is chock-full of vivid images by Kerrick James … James’ artwork almost makes Backroads a better picture book than travel guide. Almost. With plenty of maps, directions and little-known facts about each region, Hinckley proves himself to be an excellent travel guide.  In addition, the drives are designed for all types of sightseer – from leisurely tourist to the adventuresome off-roader.”

 Arizona Republic, Dec. 1, 2006
“An unqualified joy, whether you intend to use it for practical route planning or simply for armchair exploration.”

Tucson Lifestyle, February 2007
“Hinckley, an auto enthusiast, knows the pleasures of the open road and proves that he’s an excellent source of info on everything from the topography to the history to the attractions of the state, giving a strong overview of the character of each region.”

“Perfect for the casual traveler and the experienced adventurer alike.”

Phoenix, January 2007
“From budding poppy fields in Bisbee to salmon-colored sunsets in Sedona and historic buildings across the state, James’ artwork almost makes Backroads a better picture book than travel guide. Almost. With plenty of maps, directions and little-known facts about each region, Hinckley proves himself to be an excellent travel guide.”

Kingman Daily Minor, Feb. 18, 2007
“The book is broken into regions with easy-to-follow directions accompanying fascinating stories on what to look for as you cruise across God’s country. Add in the vivid photography of Arizona’s natural and man-made treasures, and you’ve got a wonderful treat to thumb through on a Sunday afternoon, then to use as a guide as you enjoy the state’s many backroads.”
