Roadside Tidbits By Jan Young
eBook (PDF): $9.95
How often have you been driving, say on a cross-country trip, and have flashed by a sign that says, “Historical Marker, 1 mile?” How often have you stopped to read the sign? How often... More > have you wondered what you would have discovered if you had stopped? Well, if you’re like me, the answers are: often, almost never, and almost always. There never seems to be time, the markers, although announced, can be hard to find, and then there’s the question of where to park and how to get from the car to the marker and back safely. One doubts that it’s worthwhile. But yet there’s that nagging feeling that maybe it would be fascinating. This book is a sampling of two hundred eighty four of the thousands of real-life historical markers that exist on our roads and highways. Each is accompanied by detailed location information and by an expansion of the often-brief inscription. Writing it satisfied my curiosity. It’s very likely it will satisfy yours too.< Less
