Historic Deerfield is a striking pictorial presentation of the environment, exterior and interior, in which a courageous people lived. Once the farthest wilderness outpost of the American colonists, Old Deerfield, Massachusetts, stands as a living monument to our early way of life. The moving text and detailed captions are based on Mr. Flynt's scholarly research. Mr. Chamberlain's sensitive camera takes us down the mile-long street of Deerfield's beautifully restored houses. Often it leads us indoors, providing a closer glimpse of the intimate surrounding of Deerfield's 18th-century citizens.

The Chamberlain family spent a dozen blissful years in pre World War II France, with their beloved cook, Clementine, learning the gustatory pleasures of snail hunting in their backyard and bottling their own wine. When war rumblings sent them scurrying Stateside, Clementine refused to be left behind and made a new home for herself in Marblehead, Massachusetts, where she introduced the initially suspicious Yankees to the pleasures of la cuisine de bonne femme. First published in 1943, Clementine in the Kitchen is a charming portrait of a family of gastronomic adventurers, and a mouth-watering collection of more than 170 traditional French recipes.
