Reviews Northland

  • Geoffrey
    (Note: I received an advanced electronic copy of this book from NetGalley) The pages of this travelogue will fly by fast for readers as they follow the author along on an informatively enjoyable journey from Maine to Washington state through the US’s northern border, a fascinating boundary land that has become seemingly forgotten in this day and age.

    I really enjoyed this adventure with historical info. I read along with my tablet on Google Earth to follow along and get a better feel for the territory being traveled.
  • Janette Mcmahon
    Readable nonfiction on the US's northern border. Perfect blend of history and geography. Highly recommend for readers of travelogues and history.
