                  Robert Frost's New England
                  Source: Amazon
                  Author: Betsy Melvin, Tom Melvin, and Robert Frost
                  State: VT
                  From an Amazon reader: "This book elegantly pairs Frost's poems with corresponding photos. Often the poems accompany a two page photo spread. The photography is good, although the image quality on paper isn't fabulous. It's nice to read his poems and have images of New England bring them to life." (2000)

                  State: VT
                  "'Granite & Cedar' is set in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom; the black and white photographs (most taken between 1971 and 1976) represent a simpler time when the region was a world unto itself. Then the Interstate rolled through ... we see men and women whose lives and ways are somehow very familiar although today -- they are gone." (Aug. 2001)

In this poignant photographic memoir their unmistakable outline rises above neighboring spires and bridges ... reminding us of how strong a presence they were, no matter where one stood." (2001)

It remains the best history of this fascinating old, and new, city." (1999)

                  An Eye for the Coast : The Maritime and Monhegan Island Photographs of Eric Hudson
                  Source: Amazon.com
                  Author: Eric Hudson, W. H. Bunting, and Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr.
                  City: Monhegan, State: ME
                  "Unless you reach for the Dramamine at the first mention of salt water, the maritime photographs of Elmer Forest ("Eric") Hudson (1862-1932) will hit you like an onshore breeze on a summer shore. ... The prints are all velvety grays and blacks of a kind impossible to coax from thirty-five millimeter film, and the extensive captions comprise histories of Monhegan, the nineteenth-century seaborne trade in fish, salt, ice, lumber, and molasses, and finally, the great diversity of wooden boats involved." --Antiques magazine (1998)
