A comprehensive study, both light-hearted and serious, of the enormous role of taverns and modes of travel in colonial culture. Some of the chapters discuss the Puritan ordinary, the tavern landlord, tavern fare and tavern ways, signs and symbols, the tavern in war, packhorse and conestoga wagon, early stage-coaches and other vehicles, the romance of the road, the pains of stage-coach travel, knights of the road and tavern ghosts. A fun, fascinating book!
