Publisher Comments:

It's the phenomenon: 1,000 Places to See Before You Die has 2.2 million copies in print and has spent 144 weeks and counting on The New York Times bestseller list.

Now, shipping in time for the tens of millions of travelers heading out for summer trips, comes 1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. & Canada Before You Die. Sail the Maine Windjammers out of Camden. Explore the gold-mining trails in Alaska's Denali wilderness. Collect exotic shells on the beaches of Captiva. Take a barbecue tour of Kansas City—from Arthur Bryant's to Gates to B.B.'s Lawnside to Danny Edward's to LC's to Snead's. There's the ice hotel in Quebec, the Great Stalacpipe Organ in Virginia, cowboy poetry readings, what to do in Lexington after the Derby's over, and for every city, dozens of unexpected suggestions and essential destinations.

The book is organized by region, and subject-specific indices in the back sort the book by interest — wilderness, great dining, best beaches, world-class museums, sports and adventures, road trips, and more. There's also an index that breaks out the best destinations for families with children. Following each entry is the nuts and bolts: addresses, websites, phone numbers, costs, best times to visit.

Review:

"Of the plethora of adjectives suitable for the tone of this witty reference book, the most relevant is proud; from the outset, Schultz declares her own personal connection to the places visited, titling the introduction, 'Rediscovering My Own Backyard.' Divided by region-starting off in New England, the Mid-Atlantic states, the Southeast and the rest of the U.S., then continues into eastern and western Canada-Schultz's follow-up to the bestselling 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (a global survey) presents grandiose portraits of the two countries' most popular and patriotic spots. Schultz includes plenty of directions for travel, food and lodging, including costs, though this is no budget guide (see the $75 dinner under the Brooklyn Bridge). Still, what Schultz lacks in cost-efficiency she makes up for in scope; quite literally, there's something here for everyone: baseball fields, national parks and campgrounds, major malls, expansive historical estates and more. A fine gift, it should also spark spirited party conversation-who's been where, what to visit next, and which personal favorites didn't make the cut."

I would love to see all these places, the book has info on the places. I wanted to jump on a plane and go somewhere after reading this.

While browsing through the book "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" in our public library, was disappointed to see the only reference to our beautiful little town as the "...easygoing capital city of Juneau..." Hopefully, Patricia's next book about places to see in the USA will give us some additional credits like our snow-capped mountains that go straight up from the water to where they touch the clouds, our walk to glaciers, our streams full of spawning salmon, our plentiful wild life, and our more than friendly people.
