2008 Colorado Book Award, Pictorial
From Nucla to Julesberg and La Junta to Dinosaur, there is much to Colorado that can not be seen and experienced on the interstates. A system of Scenic Byways showcases Colorado's outstanding scenery and history in 25 routes that follow two-lane highways, gravel roads, and jeep trails. Until now, information on the scenic byways has been scattered and sketchy. Fortunately for travelers interested in taking the "other road," award-winning photographer Jim Steinberg and author Susan J. Tweit are collaborating on Colorado Scenic Byways, a two volume set exploring these intriguing routes. Stunning, full-page color photos, and evocative essays make Colorado Scenic Byways the perfect gift book and keepsake; a route-by-route narrative full of details on history, geology, nature, and local culture. Maps, elevation profiles, and insider information make the accompanying Road Guide essential for the well-equipped byway traveler.
