I believe this is the very most detailed guidebook I’ve ever perused. It is well written and accurate. The first 241 pages deal with Dollywood itself leaving only less than 30 pages to deal with the surrounding area before the map section, so don’t count on the “Beyond” in the title being as informative as the “Dollywood.” Michael Fridgen is a “confessed theme park junkie” who was a public school teacher for twelve years and also an international programs director for a university for five years. His first books were novels, and he has also written the World Traveler’s Guide to Disney.
