One of the first great reference tools on the Commonwealth, this WPA Guide is an important, vital part of our heritage. While it includes brief essays describing Kentucky's history, folklore, education, industry, geology, ethnic mix and other topics, the most remarkable feature is the driving tours that are as accurate today as they were more than half a century ago. Careful annotations give directions, point out historical and tourist sites, describe the country side, and even provide mileage for the drives.

From the Back Cover:

'The great series of WPA state guides played a vital role half a century ago introducing America to itself, and The Kentucky guide remains to this day a vivid and instructive report on the sights and folkways of the Bluegrass State.' -Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

About the Author:
