Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Washington is a magnificent state criss-crossed with beckoning backroads, all waiting to be explored. Join us on a tour of thirty of Washington's most scenic drives, taking you from Puget Sound's marine parks to the many recreational opportunities and vineyards along the Columbia River; from the temperate rainforests and giant trees of the Olympic Peninsula to the live volcanoes of the Cascade Mountains and the miles of wheat in the dry lands. "Backroads of Washington"-written and photographed by local experts-takes you on routes that lead to the area's most secluded and overlooked natural areas and to sites that capture the state's colorful history. Whether you're planning a day trip, looking for unusual destinations, or simply want to learn more about the locale, "Backroads of Washington" will lead you deep into the soul of Washington-beyond the bustling cities and common tourist attractions. About the Author/Photographer: Diana Fairbanks is a native Washingtonian who teaches at Kirkland Art Center and exhibits paintings, drawings, and prints in the Pacific Northwest. She has been awarded grants for creative projects for the city of Seattle. For more than thirty years, Seattle-based photographer/designer Mike Sedam has traveled and photographed the world. Sedam has published six other books, including Voyageur Press's "Olympic Peninsula" and "Our Seattle".
