Description


Imagine taking a road trip across this great land, then hopping a flight to Hawaii and Alaska, spending time in every state in the union.

That's what the author of Slow Roads America, Jerry Park, beckons you to do from the comfort of your favorite chair. Many years, road miles, motel nights, and flights in the making, Jerry's book takes you down the backroads that knit this expansive land together in an endless variety of scenery, folk, and story. From a swamp in Florida to the Amish countryside of Pennsylvania to the top of a 10,000 foot volcano in Hawaii to New England in the fall to a canyon in Arizona to a Kansas prairie, you're coming along for the ride.

Through his rich, color photographs and engaging short stories inspired by a handful of the images, Jerry gives you a fresh and pleasurable look at ordinary scenes and stories that capture the imagination and maybe cause you to wonder about some things. Jerry stays away from the celebrated icons of the USA that have already been photographed for ages and instead looks for the extraordinary view of things we may drive by every day and never really see.
