it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012, armchair-traveling
Recommended for: armchair travelers
Read from June 04 to 22, 2012

I ownh a shelf of books by National Geographic Society, and now I have the time to read them cover to cover instead of only looking at the pictures or reading only a chapter while planning a vacation.
I appreciate the writing by the authors: Leslie Allen, Toni Eugene, Christine Eckstrom Lee, Tom Melham, Cynthia Russ Ramsay, Gene S. Stuart, Jennifer C. Urquhart, and Suzanne Venino. Their different voices tell the different stories of the distinct American scenic highways. The principal photographers are Terry Eiler, Dewitt Jones, and Steve Wall. These photographers had to do more than stop at scenic overlooks to capture the regions of continental America. I have been fortunate enough to travel four of the eight, and this book whetted my appetite to travel the rest.
I recommend this for armchair travelers and all those ready to explore.
