Photographs by David Stuart Ryan and Lisa Norfolk

Take a ride right around the USA in the company of poet David Stuart Ryan and see the world in a slightly different way from the one you have been used to.

You are shown the offbeat, the unusual, the telling little details about people and places that mark them out as the unique and unforgettable roadstops that they are on your trip.

The text and pictures are linked together to show you exactly what the author is describing, it all comes vividly alive and makes you feel you know the place just that little bit better.

For armchair travel, or the real thing, there is no better guide than 'America - a guide to the experience.'

Reviews of 'America'

"The book gives an up to date impression of America often with an emphasis on the slightly off-beat. All aspects of American life are covered, from cowboy country to the burial of the unknown soldier from Vietnam in Washington, from Dallas to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, Mexico Way and Mardi Gras have attention as do the surfing beaches and Daytona speedway.

The reader will discover just how diverse the USA is and the book paints a vivid picture of the 'real' America unlike many other travel guides.

David Stuart Ryan travelled over 10,000 miles researching this book during three extended tours of America. He is one of America's prize winning poets.

The photographs in the book are truly impressive and each is an original that has never before been published. Altogether a most enjoyable book and one which it will be a pleasure to re-read.'

A review from 'The Book Exchange"
