We Don't Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy



So, why don't you make like a tree and get outta here – and start reading! We Don't Need Roads is your density.

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the wildly successful and beloved Back to the Future Trilogy, just in time for the thirtieth anniversary. Long before Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled through time in a flying DeLorean, director Robert Zemeckis, and his friend and writing partner Bob Gale, worked tirelessly to break into the film industry with a hit. During their journey to realize this dream, they encountered unprecedented challenges and regularly took the difficult way out.

For the first time ever, the story of how these two young filmmakers struck lightning is being told by those who witnessed it. We Don't Need Roads includes original interviews with Zemeckis, Gale, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Huey Lewis, and more than fifty others who contributed to one of the most popular and profitable film trilogies of all time.

With a focus not only on the movies, but also the lasting impact of the franchise and its fandom, We Don't Need Roads is the ultimate read for anyone who has ever wanted to ride a hoverboard, hang from the top of a clock tower, travel through the space-time continuum, or find out what really happened to Eric Stoltz after the first six weeks of filming. So, why don't you make like a tree and get outta here – and start reading! We Don't Need Roads is your density. 'The most enlightening and informative book I've read since Grays Sports Almanac.  Every true fan of the Holy Trilogy should own a copy.'  Ernest Cline, author of the New York Times bestseller Ready Player One
