William Faulkner once said, "The past is never dead. It's not even past." Nowhere can you see the truth behind his comment more plainly than in rural New England, especially Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and western Massachusetts. Everywhere we go in rural New England, the past surrounds us. In the woods and fields and along country roads, the traces are everywhere if we know what to look for and how to interpret what we see. A patch of neglected daylilies marks a long-abandoned homestead. A grown-over cellar hole with nearby stumps and remnants of stone wall and orchard shows us where a farm has been reclaimed by forest. And a piece of a stone dam and wooden sluice mark the site of a long-gone mill. Although slumping back into the landscape, these features speak to us if we can hear them and they can guide us to ancestral homesteads and famous sites. Lavishly illustrated with drawings and color photos. Provides the keys to interpret human artifacts in fields, woods, and roadsides and to reconstruct the past from surviving clues. Perfect to carry in a backpack or glove box. A unique and valuable resource for road trips, genealogical research, naturalists, and historians.

A compelling regional and historical study that transforms our understanding of film history, Amateur Movie Making demonstrates how amateur films and home movies stand as testaments to the creative lives of ordinary people, enriching our experience of art and the everyday. Here we encounter the lyrical and visually expressive qualities of films produced in New England between 1915 and 1960 and held in the collections of Northeast Historic Film, a moving image repository and study center that was established to collect, preserve, and interpret the audiovisual record of northern New England. Contributors from diverse backgrounds examine the visual aesthetics of these films while placing them in their social, political, and historical contexts. Each discussion is enhanced by technical notes and the analyses are also juxtaposed with personal reflections by artists who have close connections to particular amateur filmmakers. These reflections reanimate the original private contexts of the home movies before they were recast as objects of study and artifacts of public history.

Dawnland Voices calls attention to the little-known but extraordinarily rich literary traditions of New England’s Native Americans. This pathbreaking anthology includes both classic and contemporary literary works from ten New England indigenous nations: the Abenaki, Maliseet, Mi’kmaq, Mohegan, Narragansett, Nipmuc, Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Schaghticoke, and Wampanoag. Through literary collaboration and recovery, Siobhan Senier and Native tribal historians and scholars have crafted a unique volume covering a variety of genres and historical periods. From the earliest petroglyphs and petitions to contemporary stories and hip-hop poetry, this volume highlights the diversity and strength of New England Native literary traditions. Dawnland Voices introduces readers to the compelling and unique literary heritage in New England, banishing the misconception that “real” Indians and their traditions vanished from that region centuries ago.

A complete guide to designing and living with one of the oldest, and yet one of the newest, heating devices. A masonry heater's design, placement in the home, and luxurious radiant heat redefines the hearth for the modern era, turning it into a piece of the sun right inside the home. The book discusses different masonry heater designs, including variations extant in Europe, and explains the growth of their popularity in the US beginning in the 1970s. Masonry heaters offer a unique comfort that is superior to that from convection heat from forced-air systems, and more personal than that offered by "radiant" floors. Professional contractors will find this a useful tool to consult,. Home-owners considering a new method of home heating will find all they need to know about masonry heaters and their durability, quality, serviceability, and health-supporting features as a viable investment in self-sufficiency and freedom from fossil fuels.

Als Heinrich Himmler und Marga Siegroth sich 1927 kennenlernen, ist die Zuneigung gegenseitig. Das Paar ist sich einig in seinem Antisemitismus (»das Judenpack«) wie in seinem Traum vom Landleben. Himmler, als Funktionär der NSDAP häufig »mit dem Chef« Hitler auf Reisen, rät seinem »Liebchen« aus der Ferne, den »Holunder als Mus einzumachen«; Marga berichtet ihrem Mann stolz, dass ihr Haus »Treffpunkt aller Nationalsozialisten« sei. Während Himmler nach 1933 zum mächtigsten Mann hinter Hitler aufsteigt und als Reichsführer SS und Chef der deutschen Polizei die »Endlösung der Judenfrage« organisiert, schickt er seiner »kleinen Frau«, die für das Rote Kreuz durch das besetzte Polen reist (»der unbeschreibliche Dreck«) »liebe Gedanken zum Muttertag«, brüstet sich mit der vielen »Arbeit« und legt Fotos von seinen Reisen zu den SS-Einsatzgruppen und Waffen-SS-Einheiten bei. Die Harmlosigkeit der Briefe ist nur scheinbar, hinter der kleinbürgerlichen Fassade werden die Gewalt und der Mangel an Empathie sichtbar, die auch das Privatleben der Himmlers prägten.
