Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As with a well-loved family member, it can be hard to nail down in a few<BR>words the character of a particular state. A series of images may come to<BR>mind instead--the natural wonders, man-made landmarks, familiar haunts and even the native products and foods that express the tone and character of the place we call home. Charles Monagan has been discovering and describing such Connecticut Icons for years on the back page of "Connecticut Magazine.""<BR>"Within this gift book are a collection of 50 of his favorites, each with a<BR>full-page photograph and entertaining, informative background story. From<BR>the Yale Bowl to the hot lobster roll, the U.S.S. "Nautilus" to the Merritt<BR>Parkway, Monagan successfully captures the independent spirit and local<BR>pride of this New England state. <BR>
