Here are maps and descriptions of 38 Back Country Byways covering 1,900 miles in 11 western states. They are designated by the Bureau of Land Management for scenic value. The many photos stir the wanderlust; but do we need more inducements to get into our cars for a pleasure drive? Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
