On-the-Road Histories

"...'On-the-Road Histories' can add depth and context to your wanderings. Each book includes extensive local histories, along with descriptions of must-see sites and trivia about local claims to fame…an excellent way to get to know the state.”
—Associated Press

“The popular 'On-the-Road Histories' series from Interlink Publishing offers colorful, heavily researched, cultural and historical guides to individual states.”
—Foreword Magazine

Interlink’s new travel series is a glorious, full-color salute to the cultural, geographic, and historical riches of the United States. These brief histories are as idiosyncratic as the individual states themselves: here a treatise on country music; there a brief history of North American mountain climbing. Each volume nevertheless shares elements that make any one of them a literate companion for that American classic: the road trip.

Each title includes:

  • A lively, comprehensive account of the state’s past and present history
  • Historical maps
  • Full-color and b&w then and now photographs
  • Famous sons & daughters
  • Interesting state tidbits
  • Literary extracts
  • Must-see sites
  • Visitor resources
  • Art & culture
  • Select bibliography

and much more.

Minnesota is many landscapes, but none of them fully define her. And where is it, exactly? Easterners see it as part of the West, Westerners as part of the East. Minnesotans often split the difference and call their home "the Upper Midwest."...
