    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (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

    BackRoads & ByWays of Missouri, Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excurions

    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. My wife and I just returned yesterday from his Kansas City, Weston and St. Joseph trip as well as his Gallatin, Jamesport and Kirksville trip, coupled with some of the bed and breakfasts in between, followed up by the Edina to Bethel ride. We also had time to drive along The Great River Road Ride and stay at The Garth Mansion in Hannibal. The Garth Mansion was SUPURB!! (FOR SURE)and deeply added pleasure to our already great trip.

  • The Struggle for Missouri

    eBooks

    Rating (3 reviews):
    (3.3/5)

    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?)

    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.

    Kajobes' Lexington Mo

    If you are looking at this then you already know your going to buy it. I bought this for "I'm Still Tryin'". A song left off of previous compilations. Finally we get the entire 1977 Album. I'm glad I missed the 2005 CD. The sound is not a revalation. It is what you would expect from your LP without surface noise. No Hiss or anomalies in the source. The guitars and keyboards reverb from speaker to speaker significantly. The magic of the first album was not well recorded. The second album was better recorded but the fire was not as hot. If you collect rare southern rock than this is for you. I've compared the 1995 CD and this cd compares better on the first album tracks and almost as good along side second album recordings. Is this worth $25? This may be your only chance. It would be great if we could get Missouri musicians to release $15 CDs. Ron West (and Tom Nicholas) are in Kansas City.

    Fun shape for quality board!

    0 5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013

This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2014
