J. Dennis Robinson “The Super Big Story of America’s Smallest Seacoast”

Squashed between Maine and Massachusetts, New Hampshire claims just 17 measly miles of coastline. It has only one port. So how come Portsmouth, N.H. (population 20,000), is widely considered one of America's top heritage destinations today? Award-winning author J. Dennis Robinson rockets you through 400 years of New Hampshire seacoast history with attitude. Before Lexington and Concord, for example, Paul Revere took his first ride to Portsmouth, N.H. And who saved the Pilgrims from starving in 1623? That's right, a guy from New Hampshire. Forget what you learned in school, Robinson says, because this stuff wasn't in your textbook but it's all true.
