The Years of the Life of Samuel Lane, 1718-1806: A New Hampshire Man and His World
Samuel Lane, whose life in and around the town of Stratham, NH, spanned much of the 18th-century, was truly a "Renaissance man." Civic, business, and personal concerns fill the pages of the diary he kept for over 60 years. Through this remarkable diary, historian Jerald Brown explores the life, career, and motivations of one man and his family. An introductory essay by editor Donna-Belle Garvin introduces Lane's world to the reader. This fascinating tale, profusely illustrated, is the most complete account now available of the life of a colonial New England artisan and tradesman.
