In this collection of 20 essays, In History's Embrace showcases less recognized people and events that have made the town what it is today, and highlights ways in which famous episodes and citizens have contributed to the fabric of its day-today life and evolution. Collectively, these stories reveal a town perpetually poised between respect for history and deep-rooted values on the one hand, and the persistent pressure of change on the other. The vibrant Concord portrayed in this book repeatedly bursts forth from the confining straight-jacket of image. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin #260, Fall 2007, on p. 6.

The essays of Thomas Rain Crowe combine with the stirring illustrations of Robert Johnson to produce a prophetic vision of the world in which we live -- a vision of what we have and what we stand to lose through our careless disregard for the Earth and its finite resources. A kind of activist's handbook, this is one man's attempt at saving his homeland from mindless hedonism, outside invasion, and outright denial -- writing as if there might be enough universal truth to be of some use to others experiencing similar incursions in their own locales.

At a time when slavery was spreading and the country was steeped in racism, two white men and two black men -- Gerrit Smith, Frederick Douglass, James McCune, and John Brown -- overcame social barriers and mistrust to form a unique alliance that sought nothing less than the end of all evil.

The character of Baxter State Park and the great mountain at its heart can be powerfully conveyed through two words: forever wild. The mountain known as Ktaadn, or "the greatest mountain," was known by native people, colonial adventurers, naturalists, loggers, and recreational climbers and campers. When calls for preservation went unheeded, former governor Percival P. Baxter purchased some 201,000 acres over a period of 30 years and gifted them to the state. This book draws on rich collections of archival images that date back to the 19th century.
