Being a Biker Chick who enjoys backroad riding, this book is a gem. I knew of many places it mentioned but others I did not. South Carolina has a lot of offer and the book clearly reflects it's beauty, history, and attractions.

I purchased this book looking for scenic places to visit away for the normal tourist traps. Boy was I disappointed. This book was a tourist trap. It offered very little information about spots to visit on the "backroads", just a rehash of history of a bygone era. It is full of colorful pictures of little substances. And most if the so call "backroad adventures" are the normal tourist spots. The South isn't the South of years past, especially South Carolina. Today it is progressive and modern attracting large industries. Industry has moved to the South during the last forty years and most of its citizens and towns have become very modern. The writer(s) appear to be stuck in the in the past; talking about regions relying on tobacco and cotton. This hasn't been true for over 30 years. Don't waste your money on this book. You're paying for a collection of pictures.
