Summary

A journey through the English town where the Brontë sisters lived and wrote—for visitors or armchair travelers. Includes photos and two dozen maps.   This lighthearted but deeply researched book offers interest and guidance to walkers, social historians, and lovers of the Brontë family, their lives and works. Set in and around the town of Haworth, it allows you to explore this unique area of Yorkshire and walk in the footsteps of those who knew and loved this town and its moorlands two hundred years ago.   With guided tours around special buildings as well as outdoor walks and the history of people and places who lived and worked in Haworth over centuries, it offers an insight into life and death in the melee of the Industrial Revolution. Its authors have combined their lifelong interests in Victorian literature and social history with writing, walking, photography, and cartography, and have included quotes from Brontë poetry and novels.

    The story of Memphis, Tennessee—from raucous river town to major Southern metropolis—with photos included.   No other southern city has a history quite like Memphis. First purchased in the early 1800s from natives to serve as a vital port for the emerging American river trade, the city flourished until the tumultuous years of the Civil War brought chaos and uncertainty.   Yet the city survived. Through the triumphs and tragedies of the civil rights movement and beyond, Memphis endured it all. Despite its compelling story, no concise history of this home of soulful music and unmistakable flavor is available to modern readers. Thankfully, local historian and Memphis archivist G. Wayne Dowdy has filled this gap with a history of Memphis that is as vibrant and welcoming as the city itself.
