"Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome", Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and other personal passions with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone. Never had ads, never will.
Yet more evidence of why J.L. Bell's Boston 1775 is one of the very best history blogs: inquisitive, insightful, and a master of investigative reporting where his particular academic specialties are concerned. Read bothposts and see for yourself.
