Award-Winning Photographer Jim Steinberg Launches New Colorado Travel Book.

Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road Combines Steinberg's Stunning Colorado Photography with Susan Tweit's Eloquent Essays about Colorado's Natural History

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. -- Jim Steinberg debuts his fifth book, Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road, a premier travel guide and atlas that celebrates Colorado's extraordinary diverse system of twenty-five scenic byways that follow some of the most inspiring and less-traveled roads in Colorado.

This book captures the true beauty of each byway by incorporating a meaningful combination of photographs and essays. It is for travelers who prefer winding roads to straight, who would rather explore a new route rather than get to a location fast and whose curiosity leads them to stop at a landmark sign or marvel at a waterfall or field of wildflowers. Colorado Scenic Byways is a true gift for anyone wanting to explore Colorado's natural beauty including its history, people and natural landscapes.

"The moving combination of Jim's beautiful photography and Susan Tweit's inspiring essays will easily encourage travelers to go off the Colorado beaten path," said Bill Ritter, Governor of Colorado. "There is so much beauty in Colorado that many of us do not get to see. This book is a must-have for those planning to explore the nooks and crannies of Colorado or just wanting a keepsake of our beautiful state."

Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road is a two-volume set consisting of stunning, full-page color photographs and evocative essays with route-by-route narrative full of details on history, geology, nature and local culture. A detailed Road Guide is included with maps, elevation profiles and insider information sure to make any byway traveler well-equipped for an adventure. The book also includes a forward by Governor Bill Ritter and praise from Dan Ritchie, chairman and CEO of Denver Center for Performing Arts and Bob Tope, editor of Natures Best. The book also received acclaim from the Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway Commission, America's Byways, the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Forest Service.

A professional photographer and resident of Steamboat Springs, Colorado for over thirty years, Jim Steinberg's passion for Colorado and photography has led him to all corners of the state to capture its beauty from every angle and in every season. His faithful "Old Yeller," a 1980 yellow Volvo wagon with more than 500,000 miles, has transported him all over Colorado as he has captured his amazing photos over the past 30 plus years. Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road is his most extensive look at the Colorado landscape. This book follows his previous number one regional best seller, Rocky Mountain News Number One Regional Book of the Year and a Colorado Book Award Finalist, Colorado Less Traveled, Journeys off the Beaten Path.

In Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road, Susan Tweit writes eloquently of the connections that shape the extraordinary Colorado routes and the details of the lives, present and past that animate each byway. She is a plant ecologist and the author of ten books. She previously collaborated with Jim Steinberg on Colorado Less Traveled.

Colorado Scenic Byways: Taking the Other Road is published by Portfolio Publications and is available in bookstores starting September 3, 2008. The hardcover two-volume set is available for $79.95.
