Don't Make Me Pull Over!: An Informal History of the Family Road Trip
A lighthearted, entertaining trip down Memory Lane (Kirkus Reviews), Don't Make Me Pull Over! offers a nostalgic look at the golden age of family road trips--before portable DVD players, smartphones, and Google Maps. The birth of America's first interstate highways in the 1950s hit the gas pedal on the road trip phenomenon and families were soon streaming--sans seatbelts!--to a range of sometimes stirring, sometimes wacky locations. In the days before cheap air travel, families didn't so much take vacations as survive them. Between home and destination lay thousands of miles and dozens of annoyances, and with his family Richard Ratay experienced all of them--from being crowded into the backseat with noogie-happy older brothers, to picking out a souvenir only to find that a better one might have been had at the next attraction, to dealing with a dad who didn't believe in bathroom breaks. Now, decades later, Ratay offers an amiable guide...fun and informative (New York Newsday) that goes down like a cold lemonade on a hot summer's day (The Wall Street Journal). In hundreds of amusing ways, he reminds us of what once made the Great American Family Road Trip so great, including twenty-foot land yachts, oasis-like Holiday Inn Holidomes, Smokey -spotting Fuzzbusters, twenty-eight glorious flavors of Howard Johnson's ice cream, and the thrill of finding a good buddy on the CB radio. An informative, often hilarious family narrative [that] perfectly captures the love-hate relationship many have with road trips (Publishers Weekly), Don't Make Me Pull Over! reveals how the family road trip came to be, how its evolution mirrored the country's, and why those magical journeys that once brought families together--for better and worse--have largely disappeared.

The ultimate insider's guide to Turin. Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides. Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 250 titles and 1.5 million copies in print worldwide. Appeals to both the local market (nearly 900,000 people call Turin home) and the tourist market (more than 3.7 million people visit Turin every year!) Fully illustrated with 111 full-page colour photographs. An aristocratic and blue-collar town, a technological and esoteric site, it's easy to get lost in Turin's well-ordered boulevards that gently follow the Po river. You will find warm and sweet shelter in its Art Nouveau cafes or be astonished by the sudden sight of the white mountain peaks that crown it. Turin, in the heart of Piedmonte, has always been a capital: of the Savoy family, of Italy, of the Alps, of publishing, of industry. A very elegant city that gave birth to the first marketable hard chocolate and Italy's most iconic car, the Fiat 500 - and also gave hospitality to the most important figures in European culture. Visionary architects and enlightened entrepreneurs made it great and beautiful and the city is now booming with contemporary art, live music, museums, and innovative food and wine culture. This guide will reveal 111 different faces of Turin: places, flavours, shades, and people.

The Grand Canyon: Unseen Beauty: From Colorado River to the Canyon Rim
As one of the Wonders of the World and the most iconic national park in America, the Grand Canyon enthralls six million visitors each year. Only a small fraction of those people, however, have the privilege of experiencing the canyon by rafting down the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon captures and evokes the power of that journey from the drama of the rapids and the immeasurable scale of the canyon walls to the subtle rock patterns and varied life forms. What started as an exceptional opportunity for Tom Blagden to raft through The Canyon in 2006 with Rod Nash at the oars has evolved into a passionate photographic pursuit that still continues. The route the River is the same every time but the experience constantly variable and deeply profound. Rafters never tire of it and, if anything, feel more in awe of the Canyon s magnificence with each trip. Tom Blagden s images and Rod Nash s essay reveal the canyon from a different perspective portraying what it s like to be on the river and immersed a mile deep, surrounded by rock almost half the age of the earth. On the centennial of Grand Canyon National Park it seems only fitting that we journey together to this unique place through the pages of this astonishing book. The book weaves a wondrous adventure that will bring readers along on a journey while raising questions about the significance of a national park and an iconic American river and how to sustain them for generations to follow.

London Peculiars: A Guide to the City's Offbeat Places
A peculiar can be defined as something that 'has eccentric or individual variations to the general or predicted pattern'. And, as it turns out, London is overflowing with them. This pocket-sized book will accompany you around the capital, guiding you from the tent-shaped tomb designed for Victorian explorer Sir Richard Burton by his widow, Isabel Arundel Gordon; to what may be the last surviving porter's rest in London; to a stone niche by a long-demolished foundling hospital where almost 15, 000 infants were discarded over the course of the 18th century. Sometimes heroic, sometimes tragic, often amusing and always unexpected, these so-called 'peculiars' bring colour to the fabric of London. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a visitor passing through, London Peculiars is guaranteed to lead you on an adventure.

Great Cities Through Travellers' Eyes
Throughout history, intrepid men and women have related their experiences and perceptions of the world's great cities to bring them alive to those at home. The thirty-eight cities covered in this entertaining anthology of travellers' tales are spread over six continents, ranging from Beijing to Berlin, Cairo to Chicago, Lhasa to London, St Petersburg to Sydney and Rio to Rome. This volume features commentators across the millennia, including the great travellers of ancient times, such as Strabo and Pausanias; those who undertook extensive journeys in the medieval world, not least Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta; courageous women such as Isabella Bird and Freya Stark; and enterprising writers and journalists including Mark Twain and Norman Lewis. We see the world's great cities through the eyes of traders, explorers, soldiers, diplomats, pilgrims and tourists; the experiences of emperors and monarchs sit alongside those of revolutionaries and artists, but also those of ordinary people who found themselves in remarkable situations, like the medieval Chinese abbot who was shown round the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris by the King of France himself. Some of the writers seek to provide a straightforward, accurate description of all they have seen, while others concentrate on their subjective experiences of the city and encounters with the inhabitants. Introduced and contextualized by bestselling historian Peter Furtado, each account provides both a vivid portrait of a distant place and time and an insight into those who journeyed there. The result is a book that delves into the splendours and stories that exist beyond conventional guidebooks and websites.

Barcelona: On the Road Architectural Guides
When we think of Barcelona, the eclectic art of Antoni Gaudi immediately springs to mind. It is present in every corner of the city. Or we think of the Olympic Ring with the tower designed by Santiago Calatrava; but these are only two aspects of the exquisite beauty of the Catalan capital which has been able to blend old and new in a unique and unpredictable way. The traditional Gothic architecture has a discreet historical flavour, while the buildings that have appeared in the past 10 years reflect modern art trends like Cubism, Neo-plasticism, and Futurism. Named the European capital of innovation in 2014, the city boasts extremely distinctive urban planning because of the unusual bevelled corners on city blocks that provide more open street intersections, with extra space for outdoor cafes and seating, that give the city its particularly sociable community atmosphere.

Naples: On the Road Architectural Guides
The influence of Anjou and Aragon, and the traces left by Bourbon, Hapsburg and Napoleonic domination have made Naples a treasure-trove of different styles and periods, rich in original imperfections and extravagance that deserve to be discovered and enjoyed. This guide is aimed at illustrating the structure and unusual aspects of a city in constant artistic ferment, where architecture ranges from ancient aristocratic palaces to the modern futuristic skyscrapers of the business district, the Art Stations of the Naples Metro, the small Art Nouveau houses in the poorer areas in the historic centre; architecture that exists layer upon layer, spreading outwards to the city boundaries. The twenty-year period of Fascism was crucial for Neapolitan architecture: the city was the object of widespread land drainage and reclamation work, resulting in the conclusive isolation of the Angevin Keep, the creation of the new Corsea in the area of the new foundations for the San Giuseppe-Carita district, as well as a large number of building projects in the city centre. The 'On the Road' series offers readers a voyage of discovery showing how ancient historical buildings like those of Naples, can cohabit alongside some of the most innovative and contemporary architecture existing today.

It also includes tips from locals, letting you in on the secrets that only those native to Bruges would know, and features information on cultural events. Containing new updated information, Bruges City Guide 2019 illustrates how this historic city, with its cherished architecture and artistic treasures - and its breweries and 50 or so chocolate boutiques - really does have something for everybody, whether you're planning a daytrip or a weekend getaway.
