About Caddo Publications USA
Historic Highway Guides is a website of Caddo Publications USA.
Caddo Publications USA was begun in 2000 with the publication of Roads Less Traveled, a traditional paperback historical guide book to the Southeastern United States which was based on the original American Guides of the 1930’s and 40’s. The original guides were updated with current directional information and highway designations.
In 2003, Roads Less Traveled was followed by American Trails Revisited, a themed revision of the American Guides, which followed prominent frontier trails of the American West (Oregon, California, Santa Fe, Old Spanish, and the Butterfield Overland).
Beginning in 2006, Caddo Publications USA began on the expansive American Auto Trail Series Project. This project will develop guides for all regions of the country, with a goal of having comprehensive guides by region available by the end of 2011. The Slow Travels Series will present State guides containing a collection of highways, some of which may or may not be available in the American Auto Trails series. Your support is appreciated, and any purchases go to the continued development of the project.
