Book Description
The mills at Wicksbridge are imaginary, but their planning, construction, and operation are quite typical of mills developed in New England throughout the nineteenth century. Well-researched, ambitious, and absorbing, this is another first-rate history lesson from a practiced, perfectionist hand. — Booklist, starred review ALA Notable Book
