9780615371399: Lost Davisville; Forgotten New Hampshire History

The lost history of Davisville, a village in New Hampshire, includes the ancient history of the Pennacook Indians, the social and political struggle of early settlement, and the long decline that occurred throughout northern New England. Richly illustrated with drawings, maps, and old photographs, it is largely a history of local characters, many of them teenagers, whose stories have been passed along through families, friends, and neighbors. Among them are Mary Woodwell, who refused to walk to Canada with her Indian captors; Roy and Walter Sanborn who enjoyed jumping out their Depression-era school bus, outrunning it, and waving to the driver; and finally Joseph Bonanno, who rode his bicycle down Interstate Highway 89 when the road was first constructed. Their memorable accounts contribute a certain brightness, a greatness in itself, to the long, tragic chronicle of history.
