The author is obviously very passionate about the history of the area she lives in and has devoted many hours to researching the subjects within this book. She not only focuses on the positive influences such as Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, the mills in Lowell, MA and Chicopee, MA which gave jobs to thousands of women, Daniel Webster, Milton Bradley, Annie Sullivan (Helen Keller's teacher), Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Civilian Conservation Corps which provided young men with jobs during the depression but also the darker side of history John Wilkes Booth, Lizzie Borden, the hurricane of 1938 and the Circus fire of 1944 both of which were tragedies that claimed hundreds of lives.
For such a small geographical area, New England is jam packed full of history and important people. Rightly so as this is where our country began, where our founding fathers first put down the roots that would grow into the nation that we are today. It is interesting to learn how different people and influences came together and the impact that they had on the people and situations of the time.
Those who live in New England (myself included) or have special ties to it, will find this book especially fascinating. Personally, I can't wait to go visit some of the places where history took place. I've been to a few, but am very much looking forward to visiting the rest. For anyone interested in New England or history,States of Mind: New England is a must!
