“Midwest Road Trip Adventures” Available for Pre-Order Now
From the Great Lakes to the Great Plains, a new anthology helps travelers re-discover their home state — even during a pandemic.
A new travel anthology titled “Midwest Road Trip Adventures: Highways and Byways” is available for pre-order. The volume retails for $19.95 and will be available in bookstores across the Midwest in early November.
The book takes travelers along some of the most storied highways and byways in the nation, including The Great River Road and Route 66. Stops include historic lighthouses along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio, canyons in Kansas, crystal clear springs in Michigan, Underground Railroad history in Illinois, Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, and authentic fish fries in Wisconsin’s Door County. Movie fans can visit the ballpark from “A League of Their Own” in Indiana or tour Iowa covered bridges showcased in the “The Bridges of Madison County.”
“Now more than ever, road trips are a popular way to travel! We have created a book full of road trip ideas, think of it as pre-planned itineraries for every state in the Midwest. Recommended for you by local travel experts.“ says Jamie Ward of fieldsandheels.com, author of Indiana’s section of the anthology.
The anthology is penned by authors who live and work in the states they cover. The group connected as members of The Midwest Travel Network, a consortium of writers and bloggers who specialize in the region.
“Sharing stories about the Midwest falls perfectly into the laps of Midwestern writers,” says anthology author and Midwest Travel Network co-owner Lisa Dunham Trudell. “We live here. We work here. Most of us grew up here. It’s more than just a place to us; it’s home. We know the attractions and love sharing stories about them. Who better to tell the stories of the Midwest than the people who live in its backyard?”
