PRODUCT: Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More--Explorations of Henry Rogers' 1838 Journal of Travel from Southwestern Ohio to New York City (pre-owned)
ISBN 978-1-935778-19-6; 9" x 7"
by Tracy Lawson
Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More is a first-person narrative that covers a two-month journey in six states. Henry Rogers, his wife, and her parents traveled from Cincinnati, OH, New York City, spending the bulk of their journey on the National Road, and passing through major cities and small towns along the way. Henry's daily journal entries vividly decribe his changing surroundings, and his observations about politics, commerce, agriculture, tourist attractions, new technology, and the natural landscape through which he was traveling.
Tracy Lawson and her eight-year-old daughter drove the same route 165 years later following the same path traveled by her great-great-great grandfather. Using a camera and daily journal to document their own experiences, they compared their visit and observations with those of Henry.
