If you love the sight of maple trees in Autumn, you'll want this large book of photography that covers all the New England states. The pictures are big and gorgeous, displaying rolling Vermont farms, New Hampshire waterfalls and forests of trees so brightly red and orange that they look like they're on fire. Included are poems by Dickenson, cummings and Frost and many excerpts from novels placed in New England, such as Sarah Orne Jewett's The Country of Pointed Firs. And the back of the book has a guide to identifying the trees of the region. Lovely, lovely.
