  • Blackstalker
This is a great book for finding America's most important historic sites.

It is organized by state -- that's good, but then by county. That can be a bit tricky when you're traveling in areas where the county organization is new to you.

The biggest drawback to this is that this is from year 2000, so the hundreds of new landmarks are not included. An updated version would be quite good.

Supplement this book with web searches to make sure you don't miss a new, important landmark.

Organized by state and then by county, this book offers an easy and quick way to find out about the properties that have been defined as our national landmarks. The pithy descriptions of each property are clever, articulate, and avoid formula writing, keeping the reader moving from one to another of the various entries. The photographs and occasional drawings are large and of high quality, providing a valuable complement to the text. In addition to the index by property name, there is a general index by subject matter, making it easy to find properties related by subject, regardless of location.
