What others have said: "Readers should probably consider purchasing two copies...one for the library, the other for the automobile glovebox...(it's) bound to inspire several rambles and one would be well advised to take it along as a fellow traveler." Thomas Uskali, review in Louisiana Cultural Vistas, Winter 2013. "(Mary Ann Sternberg) finds new information along this old, romantic road."
