Though no strangers to controversy, the family boasted some of the most astonishing individuals in America's history: Percival Lowle, the patriarch who planted the roots of the family tree; Reverend John Lowell, the preacher; Judge John Lowell, a member of the Continental Congress; Francis Cabot Lowell, who some say was founder of the Industrial Revolution in the US; James Russell Lowell, American Romantic poet; Lawrence Lowell, one of Harvard's most controversial presidents; and Amy Lowell, the twentieth century poet who lived openly in a Boston marriage with the actress Ada Dwyer Russell.
The Lowells realized the promise of America as the land of opportunity by uniting Puritan values of hard work, community service, and individual responsibility with a deep-seated optimism that became a well-known family trait. Long before the Kennedys put their stamp on Massachusetts, the Lowells claimed the bedrock.

What an amazing family
This was an incredible narrative. I was enthralled by most of this. I annoy imagine a curious reader not loving a great deal of this book. To find out how much poetry meant to soldiers, to suffer through unexpected deaths and losses, to overcome or be overwhelmed. Remarkable.
