That page details the guide book or map. In many cases the Amazon.com
listing includes readers'comments and sample pages from the book. You then have the opportunity to
add the book to your shopping cart and buy it. I buy virtually all of my books at Amazon.com

Note: emphasis in the titles is mine -- to help you in finding the
information you need. Don't worry too much about publication dates. Many books are updated

Note that plagiarism includes paraphrasing text and even copying ideas. Everything on this
page is original. Students, professors, journalists, and writers are outed almost every day, caught stealing
the works of others and presenting it as their own work. Then they make excuses when caught. Then they are
thrown out of school or fired, or they run for Vice President when they get away with it. At least one other travel
writer has plagiarized heavily from my work, claiming and getting credit
for writing a few dozen books every year. Some of his books have included my work for years on end,
without credit. For honorable people, permissions are freely granted so you don't need to cheat, steal, and lie.
Just say where you found the information and ideas.
