"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
There are six authors to this work, each of whom is expert on his or her section of Texas. Together they lay out some interesting trips--half-day, full-day, or multiday in length. The route descriptions are clear; the recommended accommodations (motel or camping) are provided, along with restaurant information, climatic concerns, traffic, gradient, etc. Perhaps the most pertinent comment, from a cyclist's point of view, comes from Ed Swan's introduction: "These pristine avenues seldom have shoulders but usually have very little traffic. They were built at a time when the state had coffers full of oil money and believed that if you had a place, any size of place, and another place, you should build a very nice road from one to the other." This makes the riding sound inviting indeed. Also featured: a "resources" section listing local bike clubs, sources of road maps, and organized annual rides. Recommended for all Texas libraries and larger libraries in the Southwest.
