Inside New England offers a timeless warm and delightful tribute to what it means to be a Yankee: clambake and tea party etiquette; Lizzie Borden’s breakfast; how to avoid driving the town fire truck; the six responsibilities of being a Vermonter, who actually landed on Plymouth Rock. This handsome gate-fold edition features wood engravings by the New Hampshire artist Randy Miller, and has been refreshed by the author with a new introduction, as well as updated references.
Few people know New England as well as Judson Hale. As editor of the quintessential New England magazine, Yankee, he has been absorbing and writing about its people and places for more than fifty years. A native New Englander, he includes himself in his droll and often teasing observations. A consummate story-teller, Mr. Hale gives New Englander’s something to smile about, while “folks from away” might just get a better idea of what makes New England unique.

JUDSON D. HALE, SR., joined Yankee Publishing Incorporated in September 1958 as an assistant editor. He worked his way up in the family business as associate editor and managing editor, and also became editor of The Old Farmer's Almanac. In 2000 he became editor-in-chief for both publications, and is now also chairman of the board of Yankee Publishing.
A sought-after speaker, Jud makes regular local and national appearances to talk about The Old Farmer's Almanac and the New England way of life. He has been a guest on the "Today" show, "Good Morning America," CNN, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," and numerous other television and radio programs. He is the author or editor of many books, including The Education of a Yankee (Harper & Row, 1987), and Discovering Our Faraway Brother (PublishAmerica, 2007). Born in Boston and raised on a dairy farm in Vanceboro, Maine, Jud graduated from Dartmouth College (Class of 1955) in 1958, having served with the Third Armored Division as a Tank Commander from 1955 to 1957. He makes his home in Dublin, New Hampshire, with his wife, Sally.
Inside New England changed my life. It didn t make me rich, or give me thinner thighs, but it did set me up for 12 years of voluntary servitude. Years ago, fairly new in town, I was asked to run for library trustee. Candidates always ran unopposed, but a group of old timers put up a challenger and told me to surrender. I then wisely, quietly, did nothing -- while my opponent, a man 40 years in town, ran full out as if he were a flatlander. I won and owe that victory to this book. (See page 31.) Of course, losing would have freed up my time. Thanks a lot, Jud. Read this funny, engaging book at your own risk. -- Howard Mansfield, author of Turn & Jump: How Time and Place Fell Apart --Howard Mansfield, author of Turn & Jump: How Time and Place Fell Apart
