Very attractive compilation,
This review is from: The Americas: Where to Go When: Consultant Editor: Craig Doyle (Eyewitness Travel) (Hardcover)This is a typical DK book in that it comes with lots of attractive pictures. It should fulfill the main goal splendidly if one wants a seasonal travel compilation. On the down side, it is rather brief for each destination or topic, a double-page spread has got to do even for a cross-continent train trip. On first sight, it is a bit confusing to find a rather wide mix of places literally well mixed all through the book. But then, its emphasis is on when to best go where. There is no info on other times of the year for the same place, when actually many locations could very well be visited at other times. But over all, one does get a decent overview of when it is probably optimal for a particular purpose. There are some minor faults, like a wrong placement of Denali NP on the maps of the inside covers, and it's not correct either, though less so, on the map of the Denali page-spread.
