Awesome idiosyncratic guide to (mostly) Northern California backroads. Handwritten with sketches of many of the descibed locations. More of an art book than a tour book, expressive of movement, surprise and solitude.
This is a sweet book and now a piece of history! Many of the places Thollander writes about and illustrates so beautifully are no longer around. If you see this book at the thrift, snatch it up!
