Brandywine Valley: The Informed Traveler's Guide

Sharon Hernes Silverman, Author Stackpole Books $19.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-8117-2974-1
An increasingly popular tourist destination in southeastern Pennsylvania, Brandywine Valley boasts art museums, good restaurants, antiques shopping and many other attractions. Until now, however, inquisitive travelers have had to rely on Web sites and brochures for information about the region. Silverman's comprehensive guide fills that void, giving readers an in-depth geographical, social, popular, literary and culinary history of the land. She breaks her guidebook into four sections: Chadds Ford, where the biggest conflict of the Revolutionary War took place; West Chester, a small town with a thriving contemporary arts scene; Kennett Square, home to the horticultural jewel Longwood Gardens; and Wilmington, Del., the biggest city in the region. Throughout her volume, Silverman lists parks, spas, hotels, bed and breakfasts, shops, museums, restaurants and activities for children. Illustrated with 117 color photos, Silverman's volume provides an intelligent, useful guide to the area's attractions. Maps.
