The early America sourcebook : a traveler's guide by Chuck Lawliss( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TRAV Lawliss (The Old West Sourcebook, LJ 12/93) provides a handbook of sources of historic interest for states east of the Mississippi. By 'early America,' he means from the first settlements to the beginning of the Civil War. By 'sources' he means primarily buildings of historic interest. These are 'major sites of early America and a number of less well known sites that also, individually and collectively, help illuminate their time.' The book is divided into five major regions (New England, Mid-Atlantic, etc.) and then subdivided by states. After a brief introduction to the state, cities and towns are listed alphabetically with a paragraph on each, along with the location, phone number (if any), hours of opening, and a very brief description. Occasionally, nearby accommodations ach area's distinctive foods and wines. When not traveling, Plotkin lectures and writes about things Italian and has penned The Authentic Pasta Book and Opera 101. He uses his extensive knowledge to create a catalog of helpful restaurant reviews, recipes (indexed), a glossary of food terms, profiles of cities and their local histories (indexed), and anecdotes that blend into an informative, entertaining, comprehensive guide. This selection is a treat for any travel collection. David Nudo, 'Library Journal'-

Robert E. Lee slept here : Civil War inns and destinations, a guide for the discerning traveler by Chuck Lawliss( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TRAV For Civil War buffs who want to immerse themselves in history, Lawliss provides the perfect travel guide. He includes everything from the Gettysburg battlefield, with a choice of five recommended inns, to the Windsor ruins in Mississippi, with a single accompanying inn. He divides the book into two sections, the North and the South, which are then broken down by state and attraction. The author of many travel books, he provides both basic information about each historical site, including details about directions, times open, admission price, and phone number. Lawliss then advises which historic inn to stay in during your visit and again provides information as to the address, accommodations (number of rooms available), amenities (air-conditioning, afternoon tea, etc.), rates, and restrictions (children and/or pets) as well as its historical significance. Used in conjunction with Spencer Kope's Everything Civil War (LJ 5/15/97), this good, basic guide would well serve the traveler in search of a total Civil War vacation
