A travel guide to western North America by the Standard Oil Company of California. It covers the western states from the Pacific coast and goes as far east as Nebraska and Texas, and also includes British Columbia. The first page has been removed, but it would have read: "Welcome to the West. Joaquin Miller, famous Western poet, once wrote that eyes were made for this land. Wherever you drive across its length and breadth you find endless scenery that lives in the memory...sweeping plains, silvery deserts, majestic forests and mountains, haunting lakes and streams. And, at its farthest Western reaches, the moving beauty of the Pacific Ocean and its matchless shoreline. This booklet can furnish only a brief glimpse into the treasure of color and drama that lies ahead, but we hope you will find it an interesting, helpful traveling companion. Have a wonderful trip!" The verso is a colourized photograph captioned "Bear Tooth Mountains, Montana - Wyoming."
