This book is a great guide to the formation of US 31. I really liked all the old pictures of the route and info about the cities it goes through or has gone through. I like all the little maps of each area and it kind of shows how each of these cities was helped by the highway and the traveling vacationers of the past.
A lot of recipes were ones I already had in another cooking light book with slight variations so it was really a lot of repeats. I did like all the pictures and in some cases there were pictures of recipes that my other books did not have pics of. The recipes I have made have been very good and I will probably not check the book out again or buy it.
I was excited to get this book, but then none of the recipes were that great. I only tried one and it was very bland. I really wasn't moved to try anything else in the book. A lot of the recipes were similar to other ones I have in larger cookbooks and that may be why it was not appealing to me.
My ten year old was really into reading these after the movie came out. I like it because it puts three tales in one book and he is also reading stuff a little above his reading level so it makes him ask or look words up he doesn't understand. Great collection in one book. You can also get all of these books for free on your kindle through amazon.
My kids loved this book when we had it form the library. They have made five or six projects form it and we wrote down some of the others we wanted to try. I think we might order the book just to have it for our own use because the kids liked it so much, so check it out.
