U.S. Highway 89: the Scenic Route to Seven Western National Parks by Ann Torrence
U.S. Highway 89: The Scenic Route to Seven Western National Parks is a visual guide to seven of America's favorite national parks, hometown events and quirky roadside attractions linked by U.S. 89.
Scenic Highway 89 traces the stories of legendary trappers, missionaries and homesteaders. Widened in the Roaring Twenties to satisfy America's motoring enthusiasts, but bypassed by modern interstates, the 1,600 mile route from Canada to Mexico retains its back-roads charm.
From Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, beauty queens to working cowboys, Ann Torrence's stunning images and engaging text capture the enduring spirit of the west.
