I like this book. I live about 15 minutes from Big Bone Lick State Park and have been there many times. The salt lick is all but dried up, but there is still a small gurgle and during the pioneer festival salt is boiled down in barrels at different times of the day. I am familiar with both the Licking and Ohio river valleys as well as most of the rivers Mary crossed during her journey. I really liked the map in the front of the book. Amazing how anyone could traverse these hills without food, tools or shelter. The author did a great job of researching the historical information and presenting in such a well written book.
