Great to take on the ride!      Is it a photo book or a history book? It could be BOTH!      Tons of information here. Just a fun read by itself, but it happens to be packed with all kinds of great pictures! They could tell a story by themselves. This would be a great book to take along if you are traveling the route! It would be a great guide book but dont' let that stop you from just picking it up to read!
