More > fertile banks of the Deerfield River, to the rich, sun-lapped cliff s of the Pocumtuck Range and iconic, meandering river channel of the Connecticut. Like many towns in New England, Deerfi eld is a forested place: More than half of its land area is covered by a dense canopy of trees, which are finally beginning to stretch their mature limbs after being cut to stumps not two centuries ago. In the age of climate change, it is clear that protecting Deerfield’s trees is paramount for future generations of people and the ecosystems they inhabit.

As critical commentary, they contain astute insights into the cultural movements and intellectual history of the time.< Less
