Emily Dickinson's Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Iconic Poet
Emily Dickinson is among the most important of American poets, a beloved literary figure whose short, complex life continues to fascinate readers. But she was also a gardener and plant lover who studied botany and tended both a small glass conservatory and a flower garden. In Emily Dickinson's Gardening Life, Marta McDowell traces Dickinson's life as gardener and reveals the many ways in which her passion for plants is evident in her extensive collection of poems and letters. Organised seasonally, the book follows Dickinson through an entire year in the garden. Readers will learn that she forced hyacinth bulbs in winter, saved seeds in the summer, and pressed flowers year-round to include in her correspondence. They'll also find tips on how to plant a poet's garden and an annotated list of all of the plants Dickinson used. Packed with contemporary and historical photography, botanical illustrations, excerpts from Dickinson's letters, and some of her most cherished poetry, this revealing book is a must-read for Dickinson fans and a thoughtful gift for gardeners.

Garden Cemeteries of New England
In 1831 a new entity appeared on the American landscape: the garden cemetery. Meant to be places where the living could enjoy peace, tranquility and beauty, as well as to provide a final resting place for the dead, the garden cemeteries would forever change the culture of death and burial in the United States. The ideal cemetery would become one in which ornamental trees, bushes, flowers, and waterways graced the ever more artistic (for those who could afford them) monuments to the dead. Previous to the 1830s, the deceased were buried in church lots, in small and soon overcrowded public lots, and even, occasionally in backyards and fields. Graves were often untended, weeds and decay soon took over, and the frequently used wooden grave markers rotted away. Some turned to a movement emerging in Europe, in which horticulture was starting to become a factor in cemetery planning, at a time in which cemetery planning itself was a novel idea. New England was the first region in America to take up the new ideals. The first such cemetery, Mt. Auburn, opened in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1831, and Mount Hope Cemetery, in Bangor, Maine, followed in 1834. Today, these cemeteries are both beautiful places to visit and important historical sites. The author takes readers on a visual tour of many of the region's cemeteries, exploring the landscape architecture, the stunning beauty, and delving into the rich history of both the sites and of those who are buried there.

Embracing Light: A Year in Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island
Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island are visited by over 2 million tourists every vacation season, but few know what the island and park are like during the rest of the year, the quiet season. For over a year, the author, a landscape photographer, explored the park daily, embracing the available light, capturing the experience of the moment, as he felt it. On blue-sky days, in storms, hurricanes, blizzards, winter nights on silent beaches, and extreme cold, images and experiences were gathered, to be later shared. The work in this book represents a very personal and deep-felt intimacy with the park and the island that can evolve only by completely immersing oneself into the rhythm and flow of the land and sea, and then using all of his craft to express this deep love, his soul, that belongs to Acadia.

Maine to Greenland: Exploring the Maritime Far Northeast
Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. For more than three decades, William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard have explored the Northeast's Atlantic corridor and its fascinating history, habitat, and culture. The authors' powerful personal essays and Richard's stunning photography transport readers to this vibrant region, joining Smithsonian archaeological expeditions and trekking in vast and amazing terrain. Following Fitzhugh and Richard's travels north-from Maine to the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland and northern Quebec, then to Labrador, Baffin and Ellesmere islands, and Greenland-we view incredible landscapes, uncover human history, and meet luminous personalities along the way. Fully illustrated with 350 full-color photographs, Maine to Greenland is the first in-depth treatment of the Northeast Atlantic corridor and essential for armchair travelers, locals, tourists, or anyone who has journeyed there. Today green technology, climate change, and the opening of the Arctic Ocean have transformed the Maritime Far Northeast from an icy frontier into a global resource zone and an increasingly integrated international crossroads. In our rapidly converging world, we have much to learn from the Maritime Far Northeast and how its variety of cultures have adapted to rather than changed their environments during the past ten thousand years. Maine to Greenland is not only a complete account of the region's unique culture and environment, but also a timely reminder that amidst the very real consequences of climate change, the inhabitants of the Maritime Far Northeast can show us grounded and sustainable ways of living.

Now, with Real Maine Food you can re-create this humble delicacy as well as more than 100 other Maine dishes at home. Maine has developed its own distinctive regional cuisine, characterized foremost by the excellent seafood caught off its pristine coast but also by the wild blueberries, potatoes, and other produce from its rich soils. The authors take a ride on a nineteenth-century schooner, build a beach clambake, and judge a pie-eating contest at a state fair-all in search of the best recipes from accomplished small-town home cooks as well as renowned restaurants and food artisans. Among the dishes are Smoked Haddock and Leek Pie, Lobster Gruyere Grilled Cheese, Crab and Corn Frittata, Blueberry Pancakes, and Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies. Real Maine Food taps into the magic that draws visitors to the state year after year.

Water for Hartford
As good health is inextricably wedded to pure drinking water-and this particular concern looms larger every day-understanding delivery systems is almost as important as the water itself. Water for Hartford chronicles the century-long effort, beginning in the 1850s, to construct a viable, efficient water system. The story of Hartford's water works is a fascinating one, for it recalls the hard work, great sacrifice, and extraordinary engineering feats necessary to deliver wholesome drinking water to a growing urban center. It also illuminates the ever-changing social, political, and economic milieu in which it was built. The story of its construction is also the story of three men-Hiram Bissell, Ezra Clark, and Caleb Saville. Readers are transported back in time and given a firsthand glimpse of what these champions of a water system faced on a daily basis: unforgiving geography, venal politicians, and an often-indifferent public. The book culminates in the exhilaration of having built a water works from scratch to deliver clean, safe drinking water to the masses. Water for Hartford is a human story, peopled by men of vision and achievement, who understood that their decisions and actions would affect millions of people for decades to come.

Covered Bridges of Vermont
Both a history and a guide, this book offers scenic tours to all 106 of Vermont's covered bridges and tells the rich stories behind them. For many people, covered bridges are much more than picturesque: They represent a living link with an alluring part of our past. Along with a sense of romance, we associate them with an era of hard work, creativity, and ingenuity. Each bridge sparks a new question: Why was it built, how, when, and by whom? How has it lasted when so many others have disappeared? This guide will answer these and many other questions about all 106 of Vermont's authentic, historic covered bridges. Arranged by convenient driving tours, it provides precise directions to help travelers find each bridge--touring through the most scenic countryside along the way--and shares each bridge's history and folklore. Advice on photographing the bridges, parking, and finding nearby historical sites and museums is also included in each tour. An introduction tells the colorful story of the great truss race in the early days of bridge architecture and design. Detailed scenic driving tours make this book useful to anyone exploring the back roads of Vermont. Superb maps mark the location of all 106 covered bridges. 60 black-and-white photographs.

Four Seasons of Cape Cod
Each season paints Cape Cod with a unique palette of light and color. Winter's low sun casts long shadows and reveals the muted tones that cover windswept dunes and empty harbors. Spring starts with a hard light, but soon brings splashes of bright color as flowers emerge and the landscape comes back to life. Summer's rich, vibrant colors are followed by autumn's softer and warmer tones. Photographer John Tunney has created the first book to focus on the beauty of the Cape's different seasons. With 170 photographs of beaches, dunes, harbors, wildlife and people, this beautiful book captures the shifting light, colors and moods of Cape Cod - from Falmouth to Provincetown - throughout the year.

Route 1: New England: A Quirky Road Trip from Maine to Connecticut
Stretching from end to end of the thirteen original colonies, from Fort Kent, Maine, to Key West, Florida, the connecting sections of the Atlantic Coast Highway, known as United States Route No. 1, have formed a highway of history for three hundred years. Washington traveled it repeatedly in peace and war. Now the 94-mile section between New York and Philadelphia carries a heavier average traffic than any other road of equal length in the world. Route 1 connects New York, Princeton and Philadelphia, the three cities at which the capital was established in the early years of the Republic, with Washington, the final choice; and it passes near or through nearly all of the Revolutionary battlefields and many of those of the Civil War. It grew from blazed footpaths of the settlement era to its present condition, which the Bureau of Public Roads of the United States Department of Agriculture reports as surfaced for 84 percent of the distance, graded but unsurfaced for 15 percent, and unimproved for less than 1 percent. Work is proceeding on the less improved sections. The motorist traveling the road today is reminded frequently of the life and customs of the early days by the old towns and villages through which Route 1 passes; but they also cannot miss the unique places of interest-coffee shops, gift shops, restaurants, stores, museums, parks, and scenic turnouts-to be found along its whole length. A tour down Route 1 is a trip of history and nostalgia, as well as a slice across American culture, with all its quirks and eccentricities in full bloom.
