It is not often that a book comes with an expiration date, like a gallon of milk--but Hunter (Day Trips from Cincinnati) felt it would be worthwhile to include one--November 2000--in the eighth annual edition of his book. There is no denying that the interstate is constantly changing (this book contains over 500 changes to the 17th edition), but his information is not as perishable as he implies. Dense with information related to travel on this route, this book contains practical tips about tornado safety, local radio stations, and the location of speed traps. To have it in hand while planning or taking a trip between Detroit and Florida would be very valuable. Considering the number of "snowbirds" who make this jaunt, this could result in a lot of circulation for the book. Recommended for public libraries along the route. Genovese's The Great American Road Trip is a joy. Having surveyed the 2500 miles of route that some of us still refer to as the Boston Post Road, Genovese knows when to stop and when to keep driving. He takes time to introduce us to the people who run the sites and attractions along the way and not just show us the giant lobsters and the road kill cafes. Anyone familiar with the Post Road knows that this is a scenic route; you don't drive it if you are in a hurry. So take the time to sit back and enjoy the sights. Recommended for public and academic libraries with interest in travel, geography, or folklore.
