Review:

Travels with Elvis explores the many places where Elvis sang, ate, and rested his weary head. Retrace the King's steps state by state--from Alabama, where Elvis's father married Dee Stanley, to Wisconsin, where a man called Herbert Baer legally changed his name to Elvis Presley in 1978. Understandably, the most attention is lavished upon Tupelo, Memphis, Graceland, and Nashville. The book surfaces not only established tourist hot spots (his Tupelo, Mississippi, birthplace, school and church) but more obscure destinations such as the Tupelo McDonald's where a huge collection of books, records, and statues memorialize the town's most famous resident.

In 1948, the Presleys moved to Memphis--and the book revisits Lansky's Clothing Emporium, where the King shopped as a teen, and Kang Rhee Karate Institute, where he later learned self-defense.

Eighty photographs, fan club addresses, and an official "Elvis Day" map will delight die-hard fans. The King is everywhere--don't leave home without this book. --Naomi Gesinger
