Law & Disorder in Old Nantucket


The pristine island community of Nantucket seemingly has a spotless record because "...it was a Quaker town, but it was, after all, a whaling port. It must have been rowdy." Rum runners, inordinate frolicking, and even murder are recounted in the pages of "Law and Disorder in Old Nantucket" by Frances Ruley Karttunen.
