Exploding with National Geographic's signature photography, this book is one in a lush new series of guides from the folks whose magazines have instilled wanderlust in multiple generations of travelers. The France guide features insightful essays on history, culture, and contemporary life in France, as well as walking and driving tours. For serious explorers, there are detailed floor-plan sketches of important sites such as Notre Dame and Versailles. Other user-friendly touches range from color-coded regional sections to quick-reference visitor information (hours, fees, telephone, etc.) listed in side columns with keys to associated maps. --Kathryn True
From Library Journal
The publishers of National Geographic Traveler add to the ever-growing number of travel guides with this new series; subsequent entries will include Canada, London, Paris, and Great Britain. Modeled closely on entries in DK's "Eyewitness Travel" series, each volume is filled with recommended walks and drives, detailed information on the usual tourist attractions, floor plans, color maps, and, of course, plenty of trademark National Geographic photographsAglossy, interesting, and colorful. New York focuses on Manhattan but briefly explores the outer boroughs, the Hudson Valley, and Long Island. France is divided into regions (e.g., the Loire Valley, Corsica). Each book ends with travel advice (when to go, what to take, getting there, getting around) and a short list of recommended hotels and restaurants. As with the DK series, these books are not inexpensive, but they pack a lot of information into a compact format ideal for taking along on a trip. If your library can afford both series, your patrons will be doubly delighted. For all travel collections.ALinda M. Kaufmann, Massachusetts Coll. of Liberal Arts, North Adams
