In the early decades of the nineteenth century, Rev. Powers interviewed the surviving pioneer settlers of the Coos Country, the region of exceptionally fertile intervales along either side of the Connecticut River in New Hampshire and Vermont, resulting in detailed accounts of hundreds of settlers. 

Prior to 1840, the original publication date of this volume, Powers was able to locate about twenty surviving early settlers of the Coos Country. Based on his discussions with them, and on other sources available to him, he was able to present a detailed story of the settlement of several New Hampshire and Vermont towns in the years before and during the Revolution. (Note that the region covered by this volume is not the same as Coos County, the northernmost county in New Hampshire, to the northeast of the area described here.)

The core of his story revolves around Haverhill, New Hampshire, and Newbury, Vermont, two towns which face one another across the Connecticut River. As suggested by the names of these two towns, many of the earliest settlers derived from the older towns of the same names in Massachusetts. The origins and migration routes of many of the pioneers of Coos Country are this included in this history.
