Have you driven along historic Route 6 or through the rolling farmlands of Pennsylvania Dutch country and the popular Amish Lancaster County? Have you explored the battlefields of Gettysburg or the disappearing wilderness of the Poconos and the Appalachian mountains? Have you truly experienced the Susquehanna River? A celebration of our state's beauty, Backroads of Pennsylvania--written and photographed by local experts--takes you on routes covering nearly all corners of the Keystone State: routes that lead you to the state's most secluded and overlooked natural areas and sites that capture Pennsylvania's colorful history. Whether you're planning a day trip, looking for unusual destinations, or simply want to learn more about the region, Backroads of Pennsylvania will lead you deep into the soul of the state-beyond the bustling cities and common tourist attractions. Glenn Davis's Davis Photographic Specialties focuses on natural history photography and commercial advertising. His photography has appeared in many national publications, including Audubon, National Geographic, and Natural History magazines, Sierra Club calendars, and Hallmark cards.
