Early western touring guide offering the adventurist soul a detailed description of the old Arrowhead Highway from Los Angeles and across the Mohave Desert to Salt Lake City in thirteen detailed strip maps. This is followed by double-page maps of Salt Lake City, Las Vegas (with insets for Boulder City and Boulder Dam) and the area of Zion, Bryce and North Rim. After the maps is a list of Hotels and Motor Lodges between LA and SLC, arranged alphabetically with population and altitude. The work is closed out with mileage charts.
The route of the Arrowhead Highway is mostly the route of today's interstate 15, with the exception of the Virgin River Gorge - the original route bypassed this by going up and over near Beaver Dam Wash into Santa Clara. Rare. We are unable to locate another copy (OCLC, auction records, etc.).
