Readers and travelers are guided to more than 200 homes and historic sites of America's greatest writers--from the Jack London Ranch in northern California to William Faulkner's home in Oxford, Mississippi. Clear driving directions and visitor instructions are combined with unique tidbits about each site and author, such as the story of Jack London's custom-made furniture and the roll top desk and Dictaphone on display in his study. Literary enthusiasts are guided to the site of Thoreau's bean field, where they can poke around an exact replica of his cabin. They can drop in on Margaret Mitchell's recently restored Atlanta apartment or visit John Steinbeck's haunts in the cozy California seaside town of Pacific Grove. This family-oriented, user-friendly guide teaches literary folk about writers' work, their philosophies, and the forces that compelled them to write. All 50 states are represented, and the literary sites are divided by geographic regions.
