Reviews

"Susan Reigler's words and Pam Spaulding's photographs should immediately whet the appetite of Kentuckians to drop everything and descend upon their state parks with great enthusiasm, as there is much more to offer than was previously known or considered."—James Archambeault, author of Kentucky Horse Country: Images of the Bluegrass"

""These are the Kentucky state parks and historical locations I recognize. All of them, except nine, Nina and I have visited. In fact, we had our delayed honeymoon in a cabin at Natural Bridge State Park—in a snowstorm—in 1959! Luxuriate in these pictures and narratives—but, by all means, visit them yourselves. Then, write your own stories."—Nick and Nina Clooney"
