Yellowstone, Land of Wonders: Promenade in North America's National Park

What a delightful discovery this book is. Jules Leclercq is the kind of writer we love to travel with—enthusiastic, energetic, observant, curious, and companionable. Janet Chapple and Suzanne Cane have produced a splendid translation and well-researched edition. This lost jewel by an overlooked but wonderful explorer reads like a Jules Verne novel and is astonishing in its poetic descriptions of the raw nature of Yellowstone in the n...

Hawaii - Le plaisir de mieux voyager

I picked this book up after having read Tales of the Sound Pacific (which I loved). A friend recommended that I read this book next since I enjoyed my first Michener novel. He warned me that it was long and he wasn’t joking...almost 1200 pages. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to anybody. After the brief initial explanation of the island formation all of the subsequent chapters intertwine perfectly to produce thi...

Frommer's Portable Napa & Sonoma

This book is a great size, and offers a well rounded summary of what Napa and Sonoma have to offer visitors. However, when it comes to winery and restaurant recommendations, this books only suggests a few (2-6) from each area of the valleys, and of those, only a handful have received Frommer's ratings. There's so many more vineyards and restaurants in these regions, so more "recommended" locations would have been helpful. Still, cons...

Frommer's Great Escapes From NYC Without Wheels (Wonderful Weekends)

This is the first time I've managed to get off my lazy butt and actually review a book I've read. But I really would like to see other New Yorkers get the same sort of enjoyment out of this book that I have -- and I've only had it for one summer so far! I've lived in NYC for a total of 13 years if you count my time at college here in town. And I've always felt that, as great as the city is, it's hard not to feel a little stuck here. ...

England For Dummies

The " Dummies Guides" are at the top of the list of best travel guides. The one for England is particularly good, comprehensive but not overloaded with needless detail. The copy I received was in excellent condition. It was nice that a gently used map of London was also included . This book helped me plan my trip to England. It helped me determine where I wanted to spend the few days I had. There is so much to see and do, I really ne...
