About the Author
Jamie Jensen has been immersed in road trip culture from an early age. After a three-year stint bumming around the country, making hay in Kansas, sailing boats in Chesapeake Bay, painting houses in Boston, and living in the storeroom of a Manhattan music studio, he returned to California and earned a degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley. Rather than get a real job, he then moved to England, where he began to write about America. Jamie is the author of Road Trip guides to the USA, California & the Southwest, and New England. He lives in Northern California, at the west end of US-50.

We got the tickets for the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk much cheaper from the American Indian Museum in Flaggstaff, Az.
Over the 30 days, we travelled 6000 miles and cost us $6000 (Petrol + motels & food/drinks) for the four of us, making it at $50 per day per head or $1 per mile. We travelled in a Toyota Sienna people carrier.
We all had a wonderful time, even though we got stopped for driving at 40 mph on a 25mph road. Not fined but a warning not to do it again during our stay in the USA, by the Navajo Policeman, in Arizona.
There is about 100 pages devoted to each route so you're basically getting eleven small books in one big book.
Map detail is simple and not detailed, so you obviously need a map and/or sat nav to supplement the book.
Lots of really useful info on accommodation and eateries. Other great info such as warnings to fuel up in some more remote locations where fuel is sparse.
The only annoying aspect for me personally is that the route I am doing is east to west and the book details the routes west to east, but you can't blame the book for that!
