In Yankee’s July/August 2020 issue, we published a feature called “Resilience, Courage, and Hope,” which spotlighted some of our favorite profiles of New Englanders who overcame adversity. Due to space restrictions, we could include only excerpts in that feature — but here, we present links to many of the full versions (and we’ll add the rest over the coming weeks, when we can access our physical library again to digitize them). So read on for “the rest of the story,” and enjoy!
