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.
