Reviews of the First Edition of Nine Days Traveling:

Lawrence Krumenaker, in ‘Nine Days Traveling’…..has meticulously traced every step Lafayette took and has written out a plan whereby we can follow the same route, but by car,…..Now that we are able to move freely about, following Lafayette around Alabama might be great fun for the historically minded.”

Don Noble, Tuscaloosa News

“Fantastic work!”

Chuck Schwam, American Friends of Lafayette
