It's quite a huge book (over 500 pages). While it's not in depth like Bearrs, it's a highly readable and useful guide book. Well illustrated with old drawings, photos, and useful maps, it's a perfect blend of history as well as tour instructions. If you're going anywhere near Vicksburg or New Orleans, Jackson, Port Hudson & the other places involved in the Vicksburg campaign, this is a good book to tote along.
