Discover the strange, sublime, and breathtaking sights of Texas with this illustrated guide featuring thirty backroad excursions.

The second largest state in America, Texas is home to a vast array of hidden treasures waiting just off the beaten path. Backroads of Texas guides readers to intriguing sites, offbeat characters, and glorious landscapes that are typically missed by interstate travelers.

Watch frenzied bats as they fly by the thousands from San Angelo’s Foster Road Bridge. Catch your breath as you drink in the majestic Guadalupe Mountains. Get ready for goosebumps when you spelunk into the shadowy depths of Inner Space Cavern. And try not to get spooked when you see the paranormal “ghost lights” near the eclectic town of Marfa. These off-road sights are what truly set the Lone Star State apart from its neighbors.

Completely reimagined for a new generation of road-trip takers and explorers, Backroads of Texas is lavishly illustrated with photographs, maps, and vintage advertising of Texas’s many scenic, historic, and cultural attractions.
