Roads Less Traveled in Oregon is a series of books by Steve Arndt focusing on the history and beauty of Oregon. Each book guides you through a geographic region of Oregon using mostly back roads and takes you to the amazing small towns that dot the countryside.

Oregon Ghost Towns A-Z adds new perspective to the definition of ghost towns and describes communities that conform to accepted classification criteria. These books discuss numerous historic sites and structures that remain today – from those that have been restored or revived to dilapidated buildings, rubble piles, stone ruins, storefronts, and towns with few or no inhabitants.

On this site you can learn more about author Steve Arndt, communicate with Steve about his travels, order copies of the books, and learn more about the history and treasures of the great state of Oregon.
