Back Roads California
Travel publisher Dorling Kindersley produces arguably the loveliest travel guidebooks in the world today, with photos, texts, and maps in their Eyewitness series.
DK asked Lee Foster to develop most of the Northern California writing/photo content for their Back Roads California.
The book was written and photographed by Lee on assignment from DK.
DK describes the book on Amazon as follows:
“Scenic routes, charming hotels, and authentic regional cuisine. Take a journey through the back roads of California to discover the area’s real soul and charm.
DK Eyewitness Travel Guide, Back Roads California, is a driving vacation guide will take you via scenic routes to discover charming Californian towns, local restaurants, and intimate places to stay. Twenty-four themed drives, each lasting one to five days, reveal breathtaking views, hidden gems, and authentic local experiences that can only be discovered by road.
Each tour is bursting with insider knowledge and loaded with ideas for varied activities, from short walks and longer hikes to days on the beach or at a spa, to wine tours, cycling trips, and watersports. Meanwhile, the most-friendly, best-value hotels and guesthouses and restaurants specializing in regional produce have been selected by expert authors.
