Overview

A selection of 15 routes through all six New England states (New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts) designed to catch fall foliage at its best. Most of these trails are situated around quiet, rarely visited villages on country roads. For each itinerary there is a map, details on points of interest, suggested walks, recommended places to stay and eat, directions, tidbits of local history and the nuts-and-bolts of traveling in the area. Many of the authors' personal experiences are included. The book is illustrated by beautiful color paintings by co-author Mark Tougias, a well-known New England artist. This title was originally announced, but never published, by Country Roads Press as Autumn Trails.

Editorial Reviews

Travel Reference Library
"... each trip includes descriptions of historic sites along the route and of shops, inns, B&Bs, restaurants and other establishments of interest. Hand-drawn maps are provided for each route, and reproductions of eight beautiful watercolors of autumn scenes by Mark Tougias are featured prominently. For motorists who don't want to risk a bad turn, here's your guide."

The Tougias brothers (authors of several travel guides on rural Massachusetts, including Quiet Places of Massachusetts, LJ 9/1/96) take the reader on 15 leisurely driving tours of New England's fall foliage. Highlighting places of major interest on planned routes through areas like the Litchfield Hills, southern Berkshire County, and the Northeast Kingdom, the authors include mention of special fall events (festivals and hayrides), leaf peeper's hotlines, and unusual ways to see the colors (whitewater rafting and canoeing). However, much of this information and more can be found in a number of popular New England guides, and the Tougiases provide only bare-bones information on places to stay (often just a phone number) and even less on where to eat. The illustrations are garish oil paintings of generic fall scenes by Mark Tougias. Only for complete (and well-used) regional collections.--Linda M.
