IMBRIFEX: Books for the journey

Currently, we are publishing books in four series:

Scenic Side Trips Series:
RoadTrip America’s Scenic Side Trips is a series of road trip guides in North America. Each guide features over two dozen scenic and historic routes that that are easily accessible from Interstate highways. Descriptive narrative, gorgeous photography, and detailed maps reveal up-to-date discoveries, fascinating history, roadside attractions, and unique food and lodging.

Base Camp Hiking Guides Series:
This is a series of hiking guides based in key American cities where hikers can enjoy solitude and unspoiled wilderness by day and world-class urban amenities by night. The authors of these books are expert hikers who are gifted in sharing tips and suggestions for exploring these hikes.

The Local Angler Series:
The Local Angler is a series of ten guides written by fishing enthusiasts with years of experience fishing in the waters they know best—the ones within easy reach of home. Each guidebook features more than two dozen wades, paddles, or floats described by expert anglers who share secrets and tips about their home regions. With a Local Angler guide, you can discover streams, rivers, lakes, coastal inlets, and even deep sea fishing “holes,” all near major metro areas. This means you can enjoy a relaxing retreat to some of the best fishing spots in America, even if you have only a few hours to spare.

Literary Fiction
We maintain a small, curated list of literary fiction. We are particularly interested in stories with a connection to the desert southwest.
