A fun book with lovely pictures It's like a wishbook for road trip loving adults However I uestion some of the choices as I have driven some of the routes and some I personally thought were amazing got only honorable mentions and others that I didn't think were that great were featured A good example of this is Alaska where the Denali Highway a long remote washboard rough gravel route that we didn't find to be that spectacular was featured above the Richardson Highway which was amazing Hatcher Pass was probably the most unbelievable road I have travelled and it and wasn't even given a mention But that's just my opinion I guess Overall it has some really amazing routes I hope to travel someday
