Moving Sale: US89 books


The reality of a small press going up against the big box shops is that sometimes they over-order…and return books. Books otherwise in excellent condition, but with a label on them. Which means they cannot be sold as new. Sagebrush Press is moving and we need to sell a few dozen copies of our returns. Here’s your chance to get a copy of U.S. Highway 89 at a substantial discount, just in time for summer road trips. Act now, these won’t last long.

About the book

U.S. Highway 89: the Scenic Route to Seven Western National Parks
by Ann Torrence

U.S. Highway 89: The Scenic Route to Seven Western National Parks is a visual guide to seven of America’s favorite national parks, hometown events and quirky roadside attractions linked by U.S. 89.
Scenic Highway 89 traces the stories of legendary trappers, missionaries and homesteaders. Widened in the Roaring Twenties to satisfy America’s motoring enthusiasts, but bypassed by modern interstates, the 1,600 mile route from Canada to Mexico retains its back-roads charm. From Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, beauty queens to working cowboys, Ann Torrence’s stunning images and engaging text capture the enduring spirit of the west.

Ann Torrence
Salt Lake City writer and photographer Ann Torrence drove over 15,000 miles to research and photograph U.S. Highway 89. Her documentary style explores the interplay of the human element and landscape; transformations of culture–what is kept, lost, and reinvented; and the iconography of the American West. U.S. Highway 89 is her first book.
