Editorial Reviews

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.
