about

Highway 97 winds its way from the high desert plains of northern California to the Yukon-British Columbia border, making it North America's longest north-south road. Author Jim Couper takes you on a spectacular guided tour from one end of this unsung highway to the other, mixing historical anecdotes with information on colourful local events and must-see points of interest.

From hot springs to volcanoes, dynamic cities to ghost towns, Highway 97 holds surprises and charms at every turn. Take in the lava beds and deserts, arid uplands and giant cedars, and orchards and vineyards of Oregon and Washington. Above the border, cruise through BC's sunny Okanagan, famous for its roadside fruit and vegetable stands and 60 outstanding wineries. Marvel at pristine lakes, mighty rivers and marble canyons in Cariboo ranch country, where gold-rush lore and friendly people make it a land for all seasons. End your tour in the northern wilderness, where untamed nature still holds sway. This entertaining, practical guide is invaluable to anyone interested in travelling all or part of this fascinating road.

An enthusiastic traveller, Jim Couper has written articles for Writer's Journal, Adventure Cycling, RV Lifestyle and Okanagan Life and is the author of Discovering the Okanagan. He founded Pedal, Canada's national cycling magazine, and has received awards for his newspaper writing and photography.
