The Old Pike: A History of the National Road, with Incidents, Accidents, and Antecedotes Theron will greatly interest the local genealogist, local historian, or the student researching primary sources. The author, Thomas Seawright, documents many original sources dating back to 1805 and he clearly enjoys the subject. Mr. Seawright also had the good fortune of obtaining first-hand oral histories (mostly written correspondence) from indivduals who worked-on and made a living-on the Old Pike. The book is written in a chronologic/genological style, which briefly details individual associates with the National Road starting from circa-1800. Readers looking for specifics will be frustrated because the writing is quite cumbersome. There is no real rhythm or rhythm to the chapters, simply a very rough chronology based on occupations. Unfortunately, the chapters are not written geographically. The National Road stretched from Maryland to Illinois, writing geographically would benefit future users of the book greatly, especially the reader looking for something specific. Definitely, a worthwhile book for archival purposes, but not a choice book for general reading. The book is very appropriate for people with family tied to the history of the National Road, which is also the reason the author states is his interest in writing. Additionally, a great resource for local libraries interested in a documentation of their communities and citizens associated with the National Road

This book is a detailed look at the Old Pike Road - what it was, where it was - with stories about people who traveled it as well. Enjoyed it.
