Once, covered bridges were appreciated as shelter, when horse and carriage made travel. Today, those bridges have themselves become travel destinations, as quintessential images of the American countryside, and as treasured artifacts of a simpler time. Built to serve local needs and to withstand the elements, each covered bridge has its own unique character. Gentle yet commanding presences in the American landscape, covered bridges are national treasures that continue to fascinate us. With spirited prose and 94 full-color photographs this volume celebrates the romance and lore of these rural landmarks.
