Book Description: "[I]nspiring....nostalgic, evoking a sense of home."—The Los Angeles TimesFew things stir the American heart so indefinably as the moods of autumn in New England. And no other region has yielded poets and writers more consistent in touching our emotions. Autumn: A New England Journey has become part of our perennial celebration of both nature and literature at their festive best. With dazzling new photographs and a new cover, this reissue of one of New England's most beloved books is more spectacular than ever. Ninety color photographs, by turn meditative and passionate, capture New England's fiery colors and pastoral tranquillity, and are brought to life by Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, E. E. Cummings, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and many more. To help us on our journey, a fourteen-page guide presents maps, excursions, and descriptions of the most beautiful sights. 92 full color plates; 6 maps.
