    Interesting and informative

    Almost everybody knows the famous historical facts, this book ties you into the history that happened, and in my opinion, should be remembered but SOME people would like to conviently like to forget.
    For history buffs and people who are interested in little known facts this book is a must read!
    I have often seen abandoned buildings and wondered what the people who lived there where like. This book is like that. The author points out interesting historical tidbits that some people don't even know were right in front of them. This book should everybody talking because every town has its own stories and history. If its not told, look what some great things could be lost in history.

    I got this book from the library and am buying it for multiple friends and family as a holiday gift. It's not your typical dry historical tome; the writing is engaging and you can't wait to read the next chapter to find out where the author went next in his travels. Makes you want to undertake a similar journey, to discover the little-known facts about US history, while at the same time you hope the author publishes a next edition. If you like to learn and especially to learn about the obscure and the serendipitous, you'll love this book.

    great light reading

    All of Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who..." books are great light summer reading. I have enjoyed them as I am reading them in the order they were written - 20 years ago.
