The American Heritage Book of Great Historic Places
by the Editors of American Heritage
Narrative by Richard M. Ketchum

Introduction by Bruce Catton
Publisher:  American Heritage Publishing Co., Inc.
Copyright:  1957

This magnificently illustrated volume is both a new kind of history and a guide to the historic riches that are to be seen in our own country.

Here, for the first time, is a pictorial history of America in terms of the places where history was made -- places that you can visit today.

More than 700 pictures (154 of them in full color), with 150,000 words of narrative, put you on the scene where history actually happened, tell you the story of our national past, and guide you to the most rewarding places to visit in all 48 states (book was published before Alaska and Hawaii became states)

The book is divided into nine geographic sections, each abundantly illustrated with rare photographs, eye-witness paintings, drawings, engravings, and sketches.  Following each section is a map of the area, with a descriptive listing of places to see -- including off the beaten track sites where colorful, poignant, and humorous landmarks of our history still exist.

Condition:  Used.  Hardcover.  Dust cover shows edge wear and tear.  There's a 2-inch tear in the front dust cover.  Dust cover and pages are tanned and darkened from age.  Previous owner's name and date are written on the front endpaper.
