Texas Highways, “The Devil Made Me Do It” by Matt Joyce

The piece flowed like the river, using muscular prose that bordered on poetic.

Arizona Highways, “The Ultimate Arizona Road Trip” by Matt Jaffe

You can’t help but slide into the spirit of this road trip — languid, slow, road time peppered by distant freight trains and the strumming of an out-of-tune guitar.

Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, “New. Found. Land.” by Nancy Harmon Jenkins

Great bits of history interspersed with nice quotes and locals’ expressions added to the overall sense of place. And truly, superb research.

Solid research – good anecdotes about JFK, legendary Bigfoot, and urban legends.
