What People are saying about this

James L. Garvin
"Benjamin and June Evans' New England's Covered Bridges is the first summation in a quarter century of the region's rich legacy of wooden bridges. Meticulously researched, carefully written, and beautifully illustrated, the book takes its place as the standard guide for a region that cherishes some of the oldest, newest, longest, and strongest of America's covered bridges."
James L. Garvin, New Hampshire State Architectural Historian
