It’s the city that started a revolution with its famous Tea Party, the home of such historic landmarks as Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, and the African Meeting House. Swan boats sail in the Public Garden, and there’s a thriving waterfront, the excitement of a game at Fenway Park, and some of America’s finest universities. Welcome to always-fascinating Boston, presented in a lavish, fascinating, and comprehensive visual homage. Once again, as in Washington, D.C., Elan Penn has successfully captured the soul of city with his camera, and Professor Jonathan Beagle--an expert in New England history--provides an elegant and knowledgeable  text. From Bunker Hill to the Back Bay, it’s an enlightening and beautiful tour.
