New England Coast: A Photographic Tour (Photographic Tour)

New England Coast: A Photographic Tour (Photographic Tour) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New England Coast, stretching across Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine, is one of the classic landscapes of America. The craggy cliffs, shifting dunes, and numerous bays and narrow coves of the area echo with the sound of this country's history. This nation's drive for independence, its "Yankee Ingenuity," and its industrial might all took root on the rocky shores of New England.

New England Coast:A Photographic Tour takes the reader on a pilgrimage to the center of the American experience. Through the lens of photographer Carol M. Highsmith, the shadows of the region's history are brought to vivid life. The journey begins in prosperous Connecticut and includes visits to Bridgeport and the city's unique Barnum Museum, as well as the world-renowned Yale University. Rhode Island, the nation's smallest state, is home to numerous Gilded Age mansions, including the Breakers, Cornelius Vanderbilt's resplendent summer "cottage" in Newport. On the Massachusetts coast, in addition to history- crammed Boston and Plymouth Rock, there are exclusive Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and Cape Cod, today's playgrounds of the rich, powerful, and famous.

New Hampshire borders the sea for only eighteen miles where one finds Portsmouth, the home of numerous and charming colonial manors. The coast of Maine boasts of its delicious lobsters and Acadia National Park, one of the nation's most beautiful—and most visited—national wonders.

These and more points of interest await the reader. With its wonderful photos and informative text, New England: A Photographic Tour makes an excellent gift for anyone who has visited or wishes to visit this singular region.

Synopsis:

These new additions to the highly successful Photographic Tour Series combine spectacular photography by Carol Highsmith with colorful and informative text by Ted Landphair. Each tour begins with an original map as the endpaper, and then has black and white archival photos to re-create the city or state from the past. The body of each book is filled with more than 100 original, full-color photographs, and both informative and entertaining facts to delight both the actual and the armchair traveler.
