Book review of WNY Explorer's Guide

Here is a review of my book that appeared in yesterday's Buffalo News

"This month, an impressive regional resource sure to be of interest to Buffalonians, current and expatriate alike, as well as travelers to the upstate region, hits bookstore shelves: "Western New York: An Explorer's Guide. This thick, information-packed volume, presented as an updated second edtion, is published by the Countryman Press, a division of W.W. Norton and is the work of local writer, Christine A. Smyczynski. The guide totals 608 pages and sells for $21.95 in bookstores and online. Besides a town-by-town guide to the best places to eat, sleep, shop and tour in Western New York, the well-designed paperback guide includes 17 maps, more than 100 photographs and brief histories of various inportant spots in the Buffalo Niagara area. Seasonal calendars of events and festivals, recommendations for the most family-friendly sites and eateries, and listings of the best amusement parks, nightclubs, fish fry diners and more-this book covers the territory throughly. A great find for people new to the area, and longtime residents as well." Charity Vogel, News book reviewer, The Buffalo News June 29, 2008.
