The rich history of New England is captured in enduring works by writers including Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Sarah Orne Jewett, Louisa May Alcott and more. From the icy waters of Vermont's Lake Champlain to the freezing tidal depths of coastal Maine; from New Hampshire's rocky hills to Connecticut's stone-walled roads, New England is a microcosm of the American landscape. In a country of proud regionalism, the Yankee spirit stands out in its variegated character and, of course, its rich history. This colorful tapestry of people and place has shaped the literature of New England. Be they tall tales told over the cracker barrel or misty lamentations on love and God, the spectrum of the New England story provides a unique insight on the American soul, and a surprise at the turn of every page. Classic New England Stories is certain to renew New Englanders' love for their small corner of the world and draw them back home from the comfort of their armchairs.
