The story of the Wayside Inn is research with a vengeance. It appears that almost everything that could be possibly learned about the Inn and its people is in this book. But that's not totally a criticism. First, because it's an interesting, indeed fascinating, piece of the American story. Secondly, it is excellently written, and furthermore, it makes no claims to be anythimg more than it is: a good story, a witness to history, and - I suspect - a labor of love.
