Amazon.com Review

If you're living a hectic lifestyle, Quiet Places of Massachusetts will make you want to pack your bags immediately and head for New England. If you already live there, this book will help you get to know its peaceful secrets even better.

With several New England guidebooks to his name, Tougias is an able and experienced guide to his home state. His tour of Massachusetts's pastoral areas is organized by region and includes western, central, and eastern Massachusetts as well as Cape Cod. For each region, he includes itineraries that wind through historic towns, along rivers, and across covered bridges, as well as a hand-drawn map that makes it easy to follow the route he lays out. Phone numbers for parks and other local attractions are listed, as well as a few lodging suggestions. Outdoor lovers especially will appreciate this book, which points out good places for hiking, biking, birding, and watching wildlife.

Tougias blends history and personal anecdotes with his travel information, making this first-person guidebook a pleasure to read even if you only get as far as your couch. --Rebecca Agiewich

From Library Journal

Massachusetts, known for great universities and cosmopolitan cities, is also home to rural areas of natural beauty. Tougias, a native New Englander and passionate conservationist, offers a combined history and personal travelog to places "off the beaten path" throughout the state. Tougias is in search of the picturesque and secluded sites. Arranged by region, her book is full of folksy chatter about local residents and her own exploits; directions and phone numbers of places to stay and particular sites to see are sketchy. Recommended for regional collections.?Janine A. Reid, Jefferson Cty. P.L., Lakewood, Col.
