I bought this book when visiting the President James Buchanan house. If you didn't know that there was a house to visit, this book will fill you in on all the places to visit if you are interested in presidential sites. I like to visit presidential sites, and this book is an excellent resource that includes addresses and phone numbers to the sites and what organization runs the home site. All the presidents are included, and if there are multiple places to visit (such as a birth home, family home, retreat)those places are listed also. Black and white photos (with some color photos of the more famous places) and a short but concise and interesting history of each home are included. It's a really good reference if you are trying to visit all the presidential homes, and it is also an interesting read if you can't visit in person. It's more extensive than a travel type guide, but it's not a coffee table book of fancy photos. It's for those interested in Presidential homes and their history and wanting to know where they are and what you can expect from the site. And it has a great introduction by Ulysses Grant Dietz.
