Overview

With natives as your guides, this new series steers you down the most scenic and historic byways in the areas they cover, with plenty of intriguing points of interest and places to eat, stay, and shop along the way.

If you prefer two-lane blacktop and gravel roads over interstates, this is the book for you.
