Jamaica Plain today is one of Boston’s great suburban neighborhoods, but it has not always been connected to the city. The area has a rich and colorful history that stretches from its rural, pastoral beginnings in the seventeenth century. Jamaica Plain became a part of Roxbury, and later West Roxbury, and served as a summer playground for influential Bostonians before becoming part of Boston in 1874. Today, the neighborhood is a bustling suburban spot that has preserved its natural beauty and resources. Stories abound as to how Jamaica Plain derived its name; some trace it to the flow of rum shipments to the port of Boston following Oliver Cromwell’s seizure of Jamaica in 1660. Regardless of how the name came to be, many agree that Jamaica Plain is one of the loveliest areas of New England. The neighborhood’s beauty has been protected by such visionaries as Benjamin Bussey, who bequeathed his estate to Harvard College for what is now the Arnold Arboretum, and Henry A.S. Dearborn, the former mayor of Roxbury who established the Forest Hills Cemetery.

And very good.” —Lee Child “A cop with a sharp eye, keen mind, and a lion’s heart.” —Reed Farrel Coleman “Campbell writes smart, rollercoaster tales with unstoppable forward momentum and thrilling authenticity. The Resurrection Man series is a blast.” —Nick Petrie “Grim and gritty and packed with action and crackling dialogue.” —Kirkus Review, for Jamaica Plain “Action packed. Tough-as-nails. The pages fly like the bullets, fistfights and one-liners that make this one of my favourite books of the year. Top stuff!” —Matt Hilton “Campbell’s wry maverick Grant never fails to entertain.” —Kirkus Review, for Montecito Heights “Sets up immediately and maintains a breakneck pace throughout. Its smart structure and unrelenting suspense will please Lee Child fans.” —Library Journal Review “Harkens back to the gritty action series of the 70s and 80s, with a stylish noir voice.” —Kirkus Reviews, for Adobe Flats “Crackerjack entertainment: taut, gritty and full of devilish twists.” —Kirkus Reviews, for Snake Pass “Hard-hitting action and Grant’s dry wit make this a rollicking good time.” —Library Journal Review “Campbell’s Beacon Hill is a great tale of violence and intrigue, stretching across the Atlantic and back again. In it, Jim Grant proves he is the real deal.” —Reed Farrel Coleman
Three years ago, I joined the ranks of dog owners in Jamaica Plain, a large and growing constituency. My journeys, with my pup in tow, took us down side streets and to Jamaica Pond which is a part of Olmstead's Emerald Necklace in Boston, Massachusetts. It is on these walks that I found myself closer to subtle treasures of Nature that persist in a city. I shared my photographs with friends and family who all enthusiastically encouraged me to publish them so that I could share it with a larger community. I hope you enjoy it.
