Reading Rural Landscapes, A Field Guide to New England’s Past by Robert Sanford

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. 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.

Reading Rural Landscapes provides the keys to interpret human artifacts in fields, woods, and roadsides and reconstruct the past from surviving clues. A unique and valuable resource for road trips, genealogical research, naturalists, and historians.
  • Paperback
  • 256 pages
  • Dimensions: 5.6" x 0.4" x 8.4"
  • Lavishly illustrated with drawings and color photos
  • Perfect to carry in a backpack or glove box

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
