Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Now in full color, the expanded 4th Edition of this travel classic packs 964 pages of trip tips, historical factoids, and accommodation information. In fact, Road Trip USA is so full of detailed highway tours and delightful stop suggestions that novelists as well as tourists mine it for travel data.
Library Journal
Jensen, the author of two books in the "Rough Guides" travel series (Penguin), knows that to really see the United States the traveler must exit the interstate highways and enter the two-lane byways. Covering 11 cross-country, noninterstate roads that traverse the nation north to south or east to west, Jensen documents the local color of American popular culturethe out-of-the-way monument, throwback diner, area radio station, or local brewery. He provides historical lore and amusing trivia about points along the way, as well as practical advice on where to stay, where to find tourist offices, and how to find updates on local road conditions. An appendix includes "Survival Guides," which offers travel information on two dozen major cities, and an annotated reading list. Jensen's guide is essential for travelers who are more interested in finding the real America than the fastest way from points A to B. Highly recommended.Pamela W.

    Does this come with "Lend Me" privileges? I own the pa

    Does this come with "Lend Me" privileges? I own the paper copy and want to get a Nook copy for the road. My only complaint about the book is that the layout is a tad chaotic. It's useful and fun though, and the highlighted attractions are just my style.
