During six months of research and writing, the author traveled through six Northern California counties and sections of eastern Nevada. The 160 restaurants, cafes, bakeries, truckstops and inns she covered served breakfasts and brunches to suit every taste, whim, dietary requirement and mood. Readers will salivate over the menu descriptions and the late 1970s-era prices.
