Once part of Hadley, the town of Amherst is known the world over as the home of celebrated poet Emily Dickinson. This photographic portrait of Emily,ssurroundings reveals the beautiful landscape that inspired her art, and also includes less typical but nonetheless significant images of hard-working farmhands, Irish laborers, Italian peanut vendors, riotous college students, and feuding factory workers. These two towns at the heart of the Connecticut River Valley have been appreciated by poets and artists for many years, and their bucolic and pastoral character is celebrated in this marvelous new examination of the towns, historyin photographs from 1860 through the early twentiethcentury. Famous residents of and visitors to the area are featured, including Dickinson, Robert Frost, Henry Ward Beecher and Noah Webster. Mr. Lombardo,s book combines a serious look at these historical figures with a humorous perspective on some of the area,s more colorful characters, such as Charles King, the Amherst barber who became famous for eating fifty eggs in fifteen minutes.
