Map is large and easy to read.

There's also a National Parks section that describes major points of interest and what you can expect to do there like hiking, paddling, biking & birding.

A great way to plan a road trip anywhere, focusing on National Park and camping destinations.

We bought this book for a cross country drive because the typical road trip books are filled with "kitchy Americana", something of little interest to my wife and I. I guess I hoped for a bit more with respect to the adventure aspect. It was basically a couple of really good magazine articles and an atlas. Don't get me wrong, what is there is very good. It's just not as much as I hoped there might be.

The book contains the following:

1) 100 single paragraph descriptions of Adventurous locations around the country categorized by region (east, central, mountain, and pacific) and then by type (hiking/backpacking, climbing, paddling, winter sports, biking, and birding).

2) 24 National Park descriptions, each consisting of a photo, a map, a series of factoids, and about three paragraphs.

3) A standard atlas published in 2004.

The maps are detailed and easily the most beautiful of any road atlas on the market. The fact that the maps were done all digitally means extra crisp lines and accurate placement of roads, attractions and places. The "Adventure" section in the front is interesting, though not terribly useful if you're like me and collect a stack of in-depth guidebooks before going somewhere. My only negative comment is that the maps seem a bit small. Rand McNally's are bigger. The type is normal size and easy to read, but I wish each state occupied 2 pages. There's another version of this atlas available that's a "big type" version that you may want to consider. This is a minor complaint though because I love how beautiful these maps are and enthusiastically give this atlas 4 stars.

The edition available through Amazon may be outdated. The 2010 edition is now available, but unfortunately it has the same cover as the previous edition. Unlike other publishers of road atlases, National Geographic does not emblazon the edition on the cover. You have to read the fine print inside the last page.

I have used the 1999 edition on road trips for nearly a decade. It is the first thing I pack. Beautiful, accurate, informative, and reliable, it has made the going easier through many strange cities to many remote places in North America. Although I rely more and more on Google Maps now, I still wouldn't take to the highway without this atlas, and I am glad I can replace it with a newer edition. I've never found my copy dated, but it is getting a little tattered.

It's a rebranded Rand McNally with some bits on national parks. It contains the same DOT state highway maps as every other atlas. I see no real added value to this particular atlas.

Not a user friendly layout. Map didn't denote the interstate highway grid clearly. To much back and fourth to understand directions

This is a very good road atlas. I gave it to my husband as a birthday gift and since then we are on the raod every weekend. It has very accurate maps and so we don't need to get directions before we leave. Also it has a very good feature of scenic drives so that we can plan our trip to cover the maximum scenery. This is a very good buy. You sure can start with this atlas and then probably move on to higher level.

Excellent buy. Thumbs up !!
