They Came to Fish

by Ray Brighton

This title is out of print

cover Now in its third printing, this large volume is the only history of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Written originally for the 350th anniversary of the settlement of Portsmouth in 1973, this book covers privateers and prostitutes, revolutionaries and peacemakers, and beer barons and ship builders. Although it includes 350 years of history, it is especially strong in its chapters about the last 150 years. Portsmouth's participation in world wars, the depression and the emergence into the twentieth century have not been written about extensively elsewhere. Still popular reading is the no-names barred chapter about the city's Red Light era, and especially how that section was transformed into beautiful Prescott Park.
