From the co-author of the award-winning Descendants of Judge John Lowell of Newburyport, Massachusetts, comes the first full account of the Saltonstall family in more than a century. Famous in America for almost four hundred years, it is easy to forget that members of three successive generations in the 17th century spent time in (or were threatened with) prison. Moved by piety but eager for gain, Sir Richard Saltonstall and his descendants more often than not thrived in New England.The most famous member of the family-but only the latest of the family politicians-was the late Massachusetts Senator Leverett Saltonstall.

The book includes biographical treatments of many family members, features new material on earlier generations of the Saltonstall family both in England and America, and contains two full-color art inserts.

"Scott Steward's study of this notable family is carefully and fully documented. It should be part of every library specializing in New England."
