Manassas: A Place of Passages (VA) (Images of
With its humble beginnings as a small train junction in Virginia’s northern piedmont region, Manassas has evolved from a traditional rural community into a leading city of the New South, serving as a focal point for new businesses and growth outside of our nation’s capital. Though the Civil War left an indelible mark on the character of Manassas, the area’s citizens and post-war newcomers were able to begin anew, building a progressive town, full of promise and hope, upon the four-year conflict’s ashes and battle-scarred landscape. In Manassas: A Place of Passages, this historic town comes alive, allowing the reader to take an entertaining and educational visual journey from the early days of the “Iron Horse” at Manassas Junction in the mid-nineteenth century to a more prosperous Manassas in the early twentieth century, when the streets were newly paved and lined with family-owned businesses. This comprehensive volume touches upon every facet of community life: schools, such as the Manassas Institute and the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth; the town’s many historic churches, which were acknowledged, at one time, by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!; several prominent families and civic leaders; and general scenes of people participating in recreational acti...

Budget Travel on the Alaska Marine Highway: A complete guide to vacationing along the Inside Passage
Budget Travel on the Alaska Marine Highway: A
Kevin Lee McIver provides a unique view of traveling to Alaska on the Alaska Marine Highway System. Sailing the open seas and transporting people and goods has been an integral part of humankind's existence for over two thousand years. Today much of the world's goods are transported by ships that cross the oceans in days. In remote places like Alaska where few roads exist, ships carry much of the freight to sustain life. From bringing independent travelers to experience the rugged outdoors to carrying food and dry goods, ships are the lifeblood of Alaska. Alaskans also use the Alaska Marine Highway System instead of flying to remote villages because it is less weather dependent. Often when planes are grounded due to inclement weather, the ferry still operates. It is the Alaska Marine Highway System that operates the bulk of the ships to meet the transport needs of the state. It is not a coincidence that it is called a Marine Highway System, for that is exactly what it is; a system of marine highways that connect the southern and southeastern Alaskan coastline with Canada and Washington State just as if a physical "road" network connects land points. In this book, Kevin shares his experiences on the ferry system.
