Chronicle, New England's award-winning nightly television news magazine, first aired on January 25, 1982. A year and a half later, the program introduced a new segment, "Main Streets & Back Roads of New England," which quickly became a viewer favorite. Since then, this well-loved series has been capturing the people and places that make up this unique and beautiful region. This celebratory compilation of stories from the series salutes New England's hidden corners, ingenious inventors, and nostalgic traditions, proving that a drive through the country can still lead to beautiful towns and interesting people. Long-time hosts Peter Mehegan and Mary Richardson, along with others on the Chronicle team, revisit their favorite stories, complete with video captures from the original shows. Inside these pages you'll meet the quirky individuals who populate New England and typify Yankee ingenuity. From a plainspoken Vermont knackerman to a high-flying Santa Claus from Massachusetts, these are lives to be treasured. Many of the stories explore the wonderful places that distinguish New England from anywhere else: Woodbury, Connecticut, with its surprising cache of antiques stores; Wiscasset, Maine, which calls itself the prettiest village in Maine. Other stories focus on customs and activities that have been upheld and enjoyed for generations: maple sugaring, pumpkin carving, wooden boat building. Finally, there are stories that take you to the region's remote island communities and along its scenic highways and byways--Vermont's Snow Route, Cape Cod's King's Highway, and The Mohawk Trail, among them.
