Two intriguing titles will provide both armchair and destination travelers with something different. Folklore fans in particular with a special affection for lighthouses will relish Sheryl Monks' Ghostly Lighthouses From Maine To Florida (0895873109, $12.95), a gathering of fifteen folktales about lighthouses from the East coast. While the stories read like fiction, they are derived from reports and followed by directions for the would-be lighthouse visitor not scared off by spooks. Mia Dery's Adventure Guide To The Triangle (0895873125, $19.95) refers to North Carolina's Triangle area, who enjoy a range of outdoor activities from mountain and road biking to hiking and sea kayaking. Visitors and residents alike will find plenty of sports and outdoors-oriented suggestions, including clear directions and line maps for locating the area, difficulty ratings, and reviews of back roads and byways.
