More About the Author
I grew up in Southern California back when cars were king, freeways were new, cheeseburgers cost a quarter, and every beach had a beachfront amusement park. After some very pleasant years traveling around the country (making hay in Kansas, crewing sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay, studying architecture at UC Berkeley and ghost-writing a book for the Grateful Dead...), I started work on my book Road Trip USA, a thick and tasty (and fully illustrated!) guide to the best drives in America.
Since then, over 20 years and what are now six (SIX!) ever-improving editions of the book, I've traveled close to half-a-million miles in search of the perfect stretch of two-lane blacktop. Though I drive way more than is healthy, for me or for the planet, I get out of the car as much as possible to check out the best french fries, rodeos, historic trails, and slices of cherry pie that I can find.
So please join me. Check out Road Trip USA, and hit the road!
