From the sandy shores of Cape Cod to the distinct ridges of Vermont’s Mount Mansfield; from Connecticut’s Quiet Corner to the Kancamagus Highway through the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire; and from tiny Lubec, Maine, at the “Beginning of America,” to the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” at Point Judith, Rhode Island, thirty of New England’s most varied and vibrant attractions are presented here, inviting you to explore them. Backroads of New England—written and photographed by local experts—takes you on routes that lead to the region’s most secluded and overlooked natural areas and sites that capture New England’s colorful history. Whether you’re planning a day trip, looking for unusual destinations, or simply wanting to learn more about the locale, Backroads of New England will lead you deep into the soul of New England—beyond the bustling cities and common tourist attractions.

The author of Voyageur Press’s Backroads of New York and The New England Coast, her writing and photography have also been featured on several other websites and blogs, as well as in magazines, including Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.

For over thirty years, native New Englander William H. Johnson’s artistic landscapes have captured the spectacular New England countryside in all seasons.
