The Lowells of Massachusetts : an American family

April 18, 2017
Sankovitch, Nina, author.

xii, 382 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 25 cm
"The Lowells of Massachusetts were a remarkable family. They were settlers in the New World in the 1600s, revolutionaries creating a new nation in the 1700s, merchants and manufacturers building prosperity in the 1800s, and scientists and artists flourishing in the 1900s. Though not without scoundrels and certainly no strangers to controversy, the family boasted some of the most astonishing individuals in America's history. The Lowells realized the promise of America as the land of opportunity by uniting Puritan values of hard work, community service, and individual responsibility with a deep-seated optimism that became a well-known family trait. Long before the Kennedys put their stamp on Massachusetts, the Lowells claimed the bedrock."--Provided by publisher.
