If ever the word "character" fit an American region, it perfectly describes New England: principled, patriotic, conservative here, liberal there, colorful in fall, forbidding in winter. Linked by a common past of colonial settlement and the search for religious and political freedom, these six historic states—Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont—are as notable today for their differences of terrain and temperament. From Maine's bouldered coast to the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, from historic, cultivated Boston to the beautiful Berkshires, New England is a visitor's paradise. Throughout, there is a seemingly endless array of covered bridges, grand hotels, old-fashioned general stores, stone fences, colonial battlefields, and quaint bed-and-breakfast inns.
Carol M. Highsmith, eminent photographer, celebrates the diverse and varied landscapes of New England, from architectural masterpieces to majestic sunsets; little villages to lofty mountain peaks; historic lighthouses to living-history museums. Award-winning writer Ted Landphair's lively and informative introduction and captions offer insights into the area's historical roots, cultural vitality, and the distinct personalities of these six individualistic states.
New England: A Photographic Tour explores all the treasures of this picturesque region. It is a wonderful keepsake of a memorable visit, and the ideal gift for anyone who savors unforgettable architecture, the lure of history, and the incomparable natural beauty of the Northeast.
