Away Off Shore


Away Offshore : Nantucket Island and its People, 1602 - 1890, by Nathaniel Philbrick.
1993, paperback.

Philbrick says of the island, "As a nation beside a nation, Nantucket was (and is) a microcosm of America and an exception to the rule..." Away Offshore documents the achievements, eccentricities, and far reaching impact of Nantucketers from preColonial to Victorian times.

"For everyone who loves Nantucket Island this is the indispensable book." - Russell Baker
