While not classics in the sense of the word, the scientist in me would add LETTING SWIFT RIVER GO (written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Barbara Cooney). It's set in Massachusetts and based on the damning of the Swift River in 1927. I'd also add Lynne Cherry's A RIVER RAN WILD about the history of the Nashua River.

Thanks for sharing this list!

P.S. - And how is it Jane Yolen isn't on this list? Talk about an author with ties to the region! I would imagine OWL MOON is set in Massachusetts.

Oh, gosh, yes, Jane Yolen! You're right, Tricia. Also, anything by James Marshall, who lived some of the time in CT.
