Introductory Note

All the volumes in this series are chiefly concerned with country life, especially that which is typical and picturesque. To the traveller, no life is more interest­ing, and yet there is none with which it is so difficult to get into close and unconventional contact. Ordinarily, we catch only casual glimpses. For this reason I have wandered much on rural byways, and lodged most of the time at village hotels or in rustic homes. My trips have taken me to many characteristic and famous regions; but always, both in text and pictures, I have tried to show actual life and nature and to convey some of the pleasure I experienced in my intimate acquain­tance with the people.

These “Highways and Byways” volumes are often consulted by persons who are planning pleasure tours. To make the books more helpful for this purpose each chapter has a note appended containing suggestions for intending travellers. With the aid of these notes, I think the reader can readily decide what regions are likely to prove particularly worth visiting, and will know how to see such regions with the most comfort and facility.

This volume includes chapters on characteristic, picturesque, and historically attractive regions in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, and a chapter on Washington and its vicinity. The notes appended to each chapter give valuable infor­mation concerning automobile routes, and many facts and suggestions of interest to tourists in general.
