Review:

Without this book, you'd have to cobble together pieces from dozens of histories and guidebooks.... Thompson s choices reflect delicate balancing of what was significant then with what is viewable now.... --Washington Post

Not only exhaustively lists places of note but also ranks em so you can budget your time wisely. --Maxim

A fresh title in a dwindling field. Should be on the shelf of anyone interested in the subject. --Philadelphia Inquirer
