Covered Bridges of Vermont by Ed Barna

For many people, covered bridges are much more than picturesque: They represent a living link with an alluring part of our past. Along with a sense of romance, we associate them with an era of hard work, creativity, and ingenuity. Each bridge sparks a new question: Why was it built, how, when, and by whom? How has it lasted when so many others have disappeared?<P>This guide will answer these and many other questions about all 106 of Vermonts authentic, historic covered bridges. Arranged by convenient driving tours, it provides precise directions to help travelers find each bridge -- touring through the most scenic countryside along the way -- and shares each bridges history and folklore. Advice on photographing the bridges, parking, and finding nearby historical sites and museums is also included in each tour. An introduction tells the colorful story of the great truss race in the early days of bridge architecture and design.
