A photo book profiling the history, architecture, conservation status, and visit details of every covered bridge in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding regions. Crossing under Cover is a lovingly crafted and detailed profiling of the 24 covered bridges located in the tricounty/state area of Chester County, Pennsylvania; Cecil County, Maryland; and New Castle County, Delaware. The book features: . a general history of covered bridges, including Pennsylvania’s prominence in that history; . an overview of covered-bridge architectural styles; . a profile of each bridge, including photographs and interesting local facts; . the legacy and lore of each individual covered bridge and the impact they have on their communities and local history; . a map and detailed driving tour that readers can follow to visit all the bridges; and . the architectural style of each bridge. This is the only book to feature covered bridges of three contiguous states, and the latest book in decades to focus on covered bridges of Chester County. AUTHOR: Sara Beth A. R. Kohut grew up exploring her native Chester County, Pennsylvania, as well as the neighboring counties in Delaware and Maryland. Sara Beth’s passion for covered bridges started when her parents took her at the age of nine to see the Jackson Saw Mill Covered Bridge as it sat in shambles after a storm. Fortunately, that bridge was rebuilt, enabling her, as an adult, to rediscover and write about the lore and legends of that and other covered bridges. She has written, published, and presented about local history and events and serves on her township’s historical commission. Sara Beth lives in Chester County and works as an attorney, writer, and historian. 72 colour images
