Included are details of lesser- traveled roads and regions, sites to see, tours, parks and trails, and historical information. Each and every drive also comes with a detailed map and itinerary, pricing and contact information for places to eat and sleep, as well as gorgeous color photography.

Drives include:
• Minnesota River Valley
• River Bluffs and Amish Country
• The Canadian Border: West to Roseau
• America’s Little Sweden
