Useful. That word describes this book. Don't drive anywhere in this state without taking along this useful, handy guide. Originally published in 1982, Professor Hamilton's much acclaimed Seeing Historic Alabama: Fifteen Guided Tours was enthusiastically received around the state. Reviewers throughout Alabama praised her work, her artist's eye for landscape and architecture, as well as her "historian's devotion to fact and motorist's appreciation for specific directions." This praise extended beyond the state lines to publications in the greater Southeast, which recommend the volume to readers planning travel to or through Alabama. Hamilton and Matte's thoroughly revised and updated edition of Seeing Historic Alabama introduces readers to the history of Alabama by way of visits to the buildings and sites where historic events took place, from prehistoric time to the present.

Letters from Alabama : (U.S.) chiefly relating to natural history by Philip Henry Gosse( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse (1810–88) spent nine months in 1838–9 in a small town in Alabama where he was the teacher at the local school. His time there was unhappy because of the widespread abuse of slaves he witnessed, the support of the practice by his fellow Methodists being particularly distressing. However, he loved the beauty of his surroundings, and the abundant wildlife, and in 1859 he published this account in the form of nineteen letters. Gosse recounts in detail his voyage from Philadelphia to Mobile, Alabama, and the environment around his new home in the hills, with vivid descriptions of the plants, animals and insects he observed there. He rarely mentions slavery specifically, but the arrogance of the masters and the plight of their 'possessions' is a recurring theme in the work. Other books on natural history by Gosse are also reissued in this series
