Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*
Lonely Planet's The USA Book is a one-stop, comprehensive pictorial covering all corners of the USA and its territories in hardback format. Few countries offer as many sights, sounds, tastes and lifestyles under one banner, and around every curve of its 4 million miles of highways lies something unexpected. Just look at the landscape - purple mountains, Hawaiian volcanoes and Alaskan tundra, alligator swamps and buffalo ranges. Come mealtime, lobsters are cracked at Maine seafood shacks, while BBQ ribs sizzle on Tennessee roadhouse grills. Blues musicians twang in Mississippi juke joints, fiddle-fueled tunes pack dance floors in Texas honky-tonks, and rock bands thrash in Detroit clubs.
The USA Book draws together the history, culture, politics, religions, legends, trademarks and essential experiences of America in one definitive pictorial. Let Lonely Planet's photographers, authors and staff show you America through new eyes. Discover what it means to be 'from the Midwest,' where the US territories fit in, which state has the world's largest ball of twine and how a common thread joins together an enormous patchwork of communities in this evertransforming country.
Authors: Written and researched by Lonely Planet.
