Paving the Way: Asphalt in America
(December 2005)

Product Pricing

NAPA’s 304-page book about the history of hot-mix asphalt belongs on the coffee table of anyone who loves asphalt. This engagingly written book has more than 250 historic and color pictures. The book begins with the first extensive network of hard-surfaced roads, those built by the Roman Empire. It takes the reader on trips down Route 66, through the National Parks, and along Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. Along the way, the reader meets colorful characters including McAdam in the 18th century, the Asphalt Tycoon at the end of the 19th century, and the Warren family at the beginning of the 20th century. The book was written by Dan McNichol, author of The Big Dig and The Roads That Built America, and was designed by Richard Berenson, who designed McNichol’s earlier books.
304 pp. (Dec 05) ISBN: 0-914313-04-5
