So where does the Red Brick roadway go?

Question that the day: wherein does the Red Brick road in sorcerer’s of Oz go? here is the answer from Askville:In the original collection of Oz books written by L. Frank Baum the red brick roadway goes to the Quadling nation in Oz. Red is the Quadlings' state color. In his books, the soil of Oz was separated into 4 quadrants and also each was designated a specific color: Winkie nation = Yellow, Gillikin nation = Purple, Munchkin country = Blue, and also Quadling nation = Red. Glinda the good was the ruler of the Quadlings in L. Open minded Baum's Oz series. As her bubble floats far from Munchkinland in the 1939 film, it shows up to be complying with the red brick road. Therefore, the red brick road most likely leads back to her homeland, Quadling Country.

5.Baum to be not specifically consistent on points favor this.

They could change from one publication to the next. Then again, there to be no red brick road in the books. There were, however, at the very least two yellow brick roads.

7.I grew up love the series of Oz publications as walk MiddleFingerMom in her childhood.

...I had actually the great pleasure of analysis some of them to her in she last stages of Alzheimer's (when she had actually pretty much reverted to she childhood). Both of us with giant smiles ~ above our encounters as we dove earlier into that human being wholeheartedly....When i was growing up, we had actually hardbound copies from approximately 1918 and also some from approximately 1937. The latter books had fantastic color bowl illustrations, but the previously ones had MUCH much better pen-and-ink illustrations (I bet the Nome King native those STILL has the power to provide me nightmares - listed below is a publication cover native 1927 -- not even CLOSE to the terrifying effects of that fat li'l hairball v stubby arms and legs marching ~ above Oz)....The Nome King, BTW, acquired "around the deadly and/or Impassable Deserts by tunneling UNDER them....I very recommend any kind of of the number of dozen publications from the series to kids of any kind of age....
