This guide for tourists and American history buffs describes the family homes of all presidents through G.W. Bush, covering birthplaces, boyhood homes, and adult residences that have been restored and preserved by historical agencies. The book also covers presidential libraries and museums. Individual president chapters begin with a biographical sketch, then give information on sites: cost of admission, directions, and phone and electronic contacts. Entries give background on each historical site and describe current conditions and facilities, with special attention to ease of access. The book also gives an overview of issues of presidential historical preservation and tourism. Small b&w photos are included. Gerald Gutek is professor emeritus of education at Loyola University Chicago. Patricia Gutek is a travel writer. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
