Surprise Your Friends with Highway Trivia!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Roads That Built America: The Incredible Story of the U.S. Interstate System (Paperback)
Clearly this topic will not be of interest to everybody but for those with an interest in history and the often surprising reasons behind the highway system in the U.S., this book is a joy. You will astound your friends with trivia! How many of them know that Maryland contains the most-expensive (per toll mile) interstate in the Country? (How many of your friends might care, is another story).
Altough it seems to be written in high-school textbook prose, the chapters are well organzined, the photos are wonderful and the format lends itself to the coffee table. It can be read in almost any order, a chapter at at time or even a sidebar at a time.
I now have an appreciation for the engineering marvel that Americans take for granted every day.
