THE BERKSHIRES: The Purple Hills

Email this review


An addition to the excellent American Mountain Series, these essays are concerned with this section of New England and combine to convey the character of the country,- hills and valleys, towns and villages, flora, birds and bird life, country roads, streams and fishing, gardening. Other contributors describe the Indian legends, the history -- in brief review- the society, the folk and folkways, arts and literature, summer theatre, winter sports, and the famous musical festival at Tanglewood...An appreciative, leisurely to lyrical portrait of a picturesque- if not dramatic-region.
