THE CHARLES by Arthur Bernon Tourtellot


Email this review


Latest in Rivers of America series- the historic Charles, name-studded account of the ""core of New England"". From the Indian, French, English occupations, to the early local characters, Puritanism, farms and almanacs, newspapers, contributions to America's original army and navy, its bridges, merchant princes, arts, writers -- and the Irish. On to swift summation of current activities, highlighting the romantic side of the river, its human aspects, its successive utopias, its tempering of the people. An appealing sort of approach- a good addition to the series.
