Quiet Places will delight both the active explorer and the armchair traveler as the author blends practical travel information with history, wildlife, and personal anecdotes. He takes the reader through old-growth forests, across bubbling brooks, into dark, narrow chasms, and in search of the best village greens. Focusing on unspoiled places, he covers the state from the Northern Berkshires and towns along the Housatonic River to the trails near spectacular Quabbin Reservoir to the rocky coast of Cape Ann. Each of the 16 trips details what you might see along the way, where to find the cosiest B&B, and fascinating details of local history. Phone numbers are also included. Come discover some of Massachusetts' secret spots and learn what makes them so special. Waterfalls Romantic hideaways Scenic backroads Favorite B&Bs Lesser-know historic sites Hiking and biking trails Wildlife watching Secluded hilltops Best birding spots Boat cruises Fascinating history.  "The measure of Tougias' talent is his ability to let the reader see through newly openend eyes. He shows nature and place through a magic glass, from a new angle." Springfield Union.  "Tougias writes in a clear, down-to-earth style." Boston Globe. "Different from other travel books in that it's a little bit travel, a little bit history, and a little bit personal diary."  Dartmouth Chronicle.  "An interesting and charming book where Tougias writes free and poetic. He recounts his experiences in a concise and welcoming way." The Standard Times
