There’s really nothing quite like the freedom of the open road. And there’s nowhere on the planet more thrilling to traverse by car than the United States, a country that in many ways is the birthplace of the modern road trip. As more and more travelers are looking to reduce their reliance on flying, The Great American Road Trip is about seeing the world on wheels, not wings. This book is about both the iconic routes and the roads less traveled, crossing barren deserts, otherworldly canyons, snowy mountains, and dramatic prairies – all without crossing a border. From the bourbon trail in the south to retracing the underground railroad, each route in this book has a story to tell.
