New England (Historic America Series)by Jim Kaplan, Brooks Robards (Joint Author)
The diverse people of this fascinating and scenic region come to life in this richly illustrated history, which tells the story of the first inhabitants of this area and the settlers who call New England home. Featured here are the lives and legacies of Native Americans and the missionaries who came to "save" them; trappers and intrepid explorers; prospectors; loggers; railroad builders; and homesteaders. Some of their communities were transient; others became permanent, but all contributed to the region's unique vitality. From the rugged coast line, revered and hated by generations of fishermen, to the fall colors that draw thousands of visitors every year, the spirit and imagination of New England society was inspired most of all by the region's magnificent, dramatic landscape.
