$26.67

Dr. Robert C. Williams retired to Lovell, Maine, and has used his educational background combined with his love of history and finely-honed writing skills to produce this history of the town of Lovell. Read this book and follow the settlement from the survey of the Merrimack River in 1652 through the famous battle at Pequawket in 1725 to the current struggle between the forces of development and preservation. Williams haunted local archives and state collections of Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire to produce this comprehensive history. The writing is enlivened by current and historical photos and illustrations. Lovewell's Town provides entertainment and insight for the serious Maine historian or local history buff. For the historical researcher Williams has added a very thorough index. About the author: Dr. Robert C. Williams (Ph. D., Harvard, 1966) is a semi-retired historian and the author of numerous books and articles in modern Russian, European, and American history. He has taught at Williams College, Washington University in St. Louis, Davidson College and part-time at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. He first came to his grandfather's summer camp on Kezar Lake in West Lovell in 1939. He and his wife Ann now live permanently in Center Lovell.
