    FUN for kids and adults

    I purchased this as a gift for my fourth-grade nephew, who was taking Missouri history in school. When I received it, I was so impressed -- beautiful photographs & illustrations, fun stores -- that I ordered another for a friend who recently moved to Missouri from California. The book was a big hit! My nephew's older brother informed me that he had checked this out of his school library several times and thought it was one of the coolest books ever.This book is ideal for a kid of ten or eleven, but it is written at a level that would appeal to adults, as well. I grew up in Missouri and didn't know half of the stuff in this book. Not all of the anecdotes are particularly sophisticated and it might be a bit fluffy for a real Missouri history buff, but there are plenty of great anecdotes, colorful photographs and illustrations. it contains the kind of stories that will really stick with kids over the years -- ghosts, dogs, etc. Along with the content, the presentation... 5/5 Carol C.

    Interesting, but a little skimpy

    0 3/5 Love to Shop (Missouri) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Backroads & Byways of Missouri: Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excursions (Backroads & Byways) (Paperback) The routes outlined in this guide are filled with the history and geographic wonders of Missouri...if you limit yourself to two-thirds of the state. Central Missouri and Southwest Missouri are virtually ignored. That omission includes Lake of the Ozarks and Jefferson City, which is the CAPITAL, for Pete's sake. There are many historic and natural attractions from Civil War battlefields to rugged state parks in the central and southwest portions of Missouri that virtually anyone would appreciate on some level. So, buy this guide and enjoy the routes contained therein...just know you're missing a lot. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 7, 2011

    Fabulous book. Well written, great factual history that grabs the reader and makes them a part of why the area discussed by the author is worthwhile visiting.

    Excellent Civil War History

    This 1909 book is a very fine account of the political and military events in MO from the secession of SC(1860) up to and including the Battle of Pea Ridge, AR, in 1862. The book is especially noteworthy in that it contains a great deal of the contemporary correspondence from the principal military and political leaders on both sides of the conflict.The book is dedicated to "the Union Men of Missouri" and has a definite northern bias which is especially evident in the first chapter which contains an extremely unflattering portrait of pre-war southern society. But the author is relatively even handed throughout the remainder of the book and even seems to develop a grudging respect for Confederate general Sterling Price.My main criticism(and it's a relatively small one) is that the book stops with Pea Ridge since, in the author's words, "the battle for Missouri had been fought and won". Though this is correct, it must be added that Sterling Price again invaded MO... 4/5 rw-chesterfield,MO - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    An excellent 70's southern rock band! You can't go wrong !

    0 4/5 Kim Mandigo (mandigo@net-link.net) (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Best of Missouri (Audio CD) I first listened to this band in the mid to late 70's and really enjoyed it. They sound similiar to many of the southern rock bands of the 70's. I owned the first album (which is long gone now) but this "Best of" is an excellent CD. It is missing a few tracks from the first album but is nevertheless great! You can't go wrong with this one if you enjoy southern rock. Has a strong Johnny VanZant influence to it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 25, 1999

    Take This Personal Guide

    We bought a house in Missouri for our retirement years. Then the market crashed and we ended up working for another 10 long years. Nevertheless, we visited our dream house on a regular basis. Not knowing too much about the southwestern part of the state (I went to high school in St.Louis), we bought OFF THE BEATEN PATH for ideas for day jaunts or weekend stays.The book has a lot of ideas for just about any interest and any season. The obvious lake sports are why we bought the house. But we hadn't thought much about river tubing, antiquing, or even photography. Missouri has beautiful water mills that are featured on calendars of the state or of the U.S. What fun to explore them! There are caves (hubby is a geologist).For me, the highlight is THE KATY TRAIL, a bike path that crosses the state. We have a separate guidebook for the trail, but our OFF THE BEATEN PATH gives us a lot more options for restaurants, interesting side trips, and photo spots... 4/5 Eileen Granfors (Cape Fair, MO) - See all my reviews, August 18, 2014

    Fantastic Book On Missouri For Both Kids And Adults!

    This book is GREAT! As a school teacher, I'm delighted to have this book in my classroom. As a parent, I'm delighted to have it at home. It's an alphabet book, a poetry book, a textbook, and an art book all in one! Though I have lived in Missouri all my life, I sure learned some new things by reading S is for Show Me. I learned about the Kimmswick Bone Beds where mastodons used to live. I learned that nearly all corncob pipes in the world are made in Washington, MO! I learned about caves, springs, animals, ice cream cones, the Pony Express, the Civil War and so much more. This book should be read over and over because there is so much information that it just can't be absorbed in the initial reading. The illustrations are beautiful. Many of the paintings contain hidden details that my kids love to search for. The poems are fun to read aloud to young children and give them just enough information to spark their curiosity.
