KIRKUS REVIEW

A travel picture book of American historical, literary, artistic, family, industrial and political landmarks, in which photographs are accompanied by descriptive text, and directions for reaching them, hours to view, and admission charges. The tour starts at Plymouth, with the Pilgrim John Howland House, continues along New England roads and cities, seaports and farms; takes you to collections as well as individual houses, forts and battle sites, birthplaces and churches, villages and taverns, restorations and parks, settlements, memorials and missions. It travels South, through the mid-west, out to the West, and the author, in indicating all the important points of interest, brings in his own personal memories of people and places, adding a pleasant touch to the journeyings. There is a ""first and only full"" National Directory of Historic Preservations to round out the coverage. A very modest price for a book of nation-wide appeal.
