Roads from the Ashes
“This is a book to stir dreams of distant places, a remarkable journey down unknown roads of travel and self-exploration. Edwards relates the stories of their American adventures and misadventures in the compelling style of a novelist, with humor, drama and brilliant imagery… A journey worth taking.”
—Al Martinez, Los Angeles Times“Edwards is a fine, unpretentious writer with a journalist’s nose for a good story. An inspiration…”
—Chicago Tribune“From the mountains to Manhattan, this tapestry of life on the road weaves the best of travel, technology, survival skills, and relationships into an engaging work of art.
Caution: Funny Signs Ahead“Fun signs from the side of the road, shop fronts and those wonderfully-American boards where they can change the message every day. From the rude (Beaver Liquor Inc.), through unthinking juxtapositions (Cemetery Lane / Dead End) to the plain unfathomable (Cat Crap), this is a great read and an even better gift.
—Peter Thody, Leeds, UK“Caution: Funny Signs Ahead is an extensive collection of bizarre, humorous, and otherwise visually-arresting signs rounded up for your enjoyment. This roadie’s personal favorites include ‘No Smoking on Campus Prohibited’ and ‘Brakeless Trucks Use Freeway'”
—Drew Knowles, author of Route 66 Adventure Handbook“If you like roadside double entendres…You’ll definitely enjoy Caution: Funny Signs Ahead. My favorite is the motel in South Dakota that proudly advertises, “Imaginary Friends Stay Free.”
