Editorial Reviews

Connecticut State Poet Laureate - Dick Allen
“Afoot in Connecticut is a gift of knowledge and love to those who have traveled or would travel Connecticut’s trails and waterways, mountains and shores.”
author of Deep Travel and The Last Undiscovered Place - David K. Leff
“Afoot in Connecticut proves the old adage that the slower you go, the more you see. In these pages we join Eric Lehman on peripatetic rambles the length and breadth of the Constitution State, exploring beaches and ridgelines, woodlands and caves, back roads and rivers, colonial cellar holes and ancient stone walls. With its seamless fusion of the cultural, natural, and personal, this book will enrich the experience of visitor and native alike.”
author of The Most Beautiful Villages of New England - Tom Shachtman
“Afoot in Connecticut is coming out in May. It is by my good friend, Eric Lehman, Professor of English at the Univ. of Bridgeport. His book on the History of Connecticut Wine is a great reference, and his Insider Guide to Connecticut is good fun and invaluable for anyone living or travelling in the Nutmeg State. The guy flat out knows how to write and make the subject interesting. Neither perfunctory nor yawn-inducing. Like Goldilocks’s soup, Eric’s writing is just right.&#x

I have lived in Connecticut for over 50 years and Eric Lehman has given me a whole new appreciation for my native state. Thank you Eric. Some great places I never knew about seen through the eyes of a true lover of CT!
