New England landscapes

Genealogists seeking historical context and information about New England's 19th- and 20th-century landscapes may want to check out a new book with 20 chapters from 20 different authors, A Landscape History of New England, edited by Blake Harrison and Richard W. Judd, geographer and historian. The transformation of essentially the same physical landscape from "failed farms" to a mecca for leaf-peepers is alone worth the price of admission.
