The Smithsonian Guide to Historic America (William Bryant Logan) pdf, epub, doc

Although the pictures are great and writing fine, there are two major cons to this guide:

-This is a guide for 5 states. Yet California gets over 270 pages, the other 4 states get less than 60 pages each (Alaska only gets 33). I realize California is a large heavily populated state, but the intensive focus on just the one state glaringly shows how cursory the look at the other states is.

-Apparently historical America didn't exist before the Europeans arrived. There is little to no mention at all for historical sites and events prior to the contact period. For instance: there's no mention of Fort Rock Cave in Oregon, where the oldest sandals in the world, somewhere between 9000-13000 years old, were found; or there are entries for Lassen volcanic park and Mt St Helens, but not for the Newberry Crater area which had some of the youngest lava and obsidian flows in North America. The neglect of American Indian and Native Hawaiian history is not for lack of space, as things like canyons, beaches and other natural sites are given mention.

Overall, it's pretty disappointing for a Smithsonian guide.
