I just got the word that the book I wrote for Colonial Williamsburg has a title! I submitted three suggestions, and they chose RIVERS AND ROADS: TRANSPORTATION IN COLONIAL AMERICA. This is a coffee-table book with stunning photographs by CW’s talented photographer, Dave Doody. I’ve seen about half–they are gorgeous. Can’t wait to see the rest! This view of the carriage in the snow is one of them. Everything has been sent to the designers for layout, and it will appear in late summer. As soon as I have a cover image, I’ll post it.
I'm an Army brat who has lived in Virginia most of my adult life. I received my BA and MA in history from the College of William and Mary and taught American history and museum studies at Virginia Commonwealth University for thirteen years. I am the author of 200 magazine articles, most on history, travel, and business topics, fifteen nonfiction books, and five historical mysteries.
To schedule book club visits (in person or via Skype) or lectures, contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I usually bring along objects and illustrations that make for a lively presentation and discussion.
