KIRKUS REVIEW

Specifically aimed towards automobile and family travel, this is concerned mainly with what the United States has to offer for leisure time touring and the emphasis all the way through is getting the most for your money. There is guidance and advice on the advisability of planning ahead, where to get information, how to prepare for the areas to be visited; there are chapters on tenting and camping, accommodations for short and long stays, food along the way, national parks, sightseeing routine and tours of colleges, museums, and industrial plants. And there are practical pointers in suggestions for free travel services, travel aids, comfortable motoring, and good behavior on the road. There are outlines for 15 favorite holidays, the places, events, and trips that will have special interest in 1959 -- Oregon's centennial for instance. There are numerous maps and photographs and the whole should be handy for domestic discussion of proposed wanderings.
