Cape Cod and its neighboring islands, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, possess extraordinary beauty. Magnificent ocean vistas, spectacular sand dunes, quiet marshes, and historic seaside villages bring people back year after year. Featuring more than 50 of Kathryn Kleekamp's original oil paintings depicting land and seascapes along with rare historic photographs, this edition includes more than 20 new images and a chapter on current conservation efforts directed at preserving the area's natural resources. Images and text capture the fundamental nature of this remarkable place: the heartbeat of those who farmed the land, fished the seas, captained the great schooners, or waited at home for a loved one's return. For the inquiring visitor these remarkable stories of courage and enterprise provide background for thoughtful reflection. Traditional Cape and Island recipes are included as another link to the past.
