by Richard HarrisHidden Highways of Arizona shows the way to adventure along lost highways, through small towns, and in wilderness areas. It introduces the traveler to back-road adventures that follow carefully planned routes. Travelers will be guided down secluded side roads and onto dirt roads to find ghost towns, red rock canyons, and other areas of forgotten Arizona. Eight routes including the popular Grand Canyon loop drive and the little-traveled Hopi Mesa Trail are detailed. The book features the most distinctive or unusual places to stay, including one of only two surviving wigwam-style roadside motels. Presented in a multidimensional layout with illustrations, photos, maps, and sidebars, each chapter follows a single route, as the itinerary moves swiftly from point to point. The author spices up the narrative with articles on local lore, historical facts, and modern curiosity. He also recommends distinctive hotels and restaurants and suggests side-trip excursions that veer off the beaten track to areas few travelers ever see. Details on local events are included so readers can plan trips to coincide with unique fairs and festivals.
