Drivers speeding across Missouri on I-70 dont know what theyre missing. But Ted Cable and LuAnn Cadden do: untold attractions right along the highway between St. Louis and Kansas City.Driving across Missouri is packed with fun-filled information, stories, and trivia that help travelers look beyond the passing blur to appreciate the Show Me states unique landscapes and landmarks.

Its authors unfold the natural beauty of the states flora, fauna, and rivers (including two of the worlds largest)- introduce the history of Native Americans, French explorers, and German settlers- reopen routes traveled by Daniel Boone and Lewis and Clark- and bring the Civil War era to life.The entries are tied to mile markers for travelers driving either east or west-no need to transpose, because the authors have done it for you.

Cable and Cadden tell the story behind Boones Lick Trail at mile marker 194.0 and point out likely roosts for red-tailed hawks. They entice you to take Exit 170 to explore Graham Cave State Park, or 148 to visit the Winston Churchill Memorial at Fulton. And within the city limits of Kansas City and St. Louis, where mile markers often arent visible, they guide the reader to notable features like the formers Jazz Museum or the latters landmark churches.Graced with dozens of illustrations and an ample array of lively anecdotes, Driving across Missouri provides more detail for ordinary landscape features than can be found in most other guidebooks, whether relating the story behind the Meramec barn or using cornfields as a point of departure to discuss Missouri Meerschaums--the corncob pipe.Through their vastly entertaining book, Cable and Cadden help to slow things down in the fast lane so that travelers can enjoy Missouris land and history, while simultaneously making a long trip pass more quickly with stories that interpret the spirit of this great Show Me state.

And, used in conjunction with Driving across Kansas, readers can now enjoy the ride all the way from the Gateway Arch to the Colorado state line and back again.
