Reviews

"Bentley endeavors to make her book as useful as possible while toting it along on a history-minded walk."

--Dean Kahn "Bellingham Herald"

"Bentley provides brief by engaging historical overviews. . . . There are stories in the ground beneath our feet, dashed dreams lingering in the air, as well as legacies of benevolent forethought from a not-so-distant past all around us."

--Christian Martin "Chattermarks blog (North Cascades Institute)"

"Coming soon to a city near you: clusters of visitors gazing intently at a handheld object as a way to engage with their surroundings. . . . The commendable new book by Judy Bentley. . . . This is an immensely appealing approach to writing history. . . . Bentley demonstrates that history is not abstruse and remote from our current experience; it is ever present--and just around the next corner."

--David Takami "Seattle Times"
