First known as Nauset, Eastham once reached across the eastern half of Cape Cod from Bass River to the tip of what is now Provincetown. The area was home to the Nauset tribe for thousands of years before exploration by Champlain and the Pilgrims, and it is now known as the "Gateway to the Cape Cod National Seashore." Whether it's the U.S. Life-Saving Service and its shipwreck rescues, Cape Cod's oldest windmill or tales of sea captains and rumrunners, Eastham is truly rich in history and tradition. Author Don Wilding wanders back in time through the Outer Cape's back roads, sand dunes and solitary beaches to uncover Eastham's fascinating past.

Faced with the sale of the century-old family summer house on Cape Cod where he had spent forty-two summers, George Howe Colt returned for one last stay with his wife and children. This poignant tribute to the eleven-bedroom jumble of gables, bays, and dormers that watched over weddings, divorces, deaths, anniversaries, birthdays, breakdowns, and love affairs for five generations interweaves Colt's final visit with memories of a lifetime of summers. Run-down yet romantic, The Big House stands not only as a cherished reminder of summer's ephemeral pleasures but also as a powerful symbol of a vanishing way of life.

A poignant, candid chronicle of a beloved nature writer’s fifty-year relationship with an iconic American landscape. Those who have encountered Cape Cod—or merely dipped into an account of its rich history—know that it is a singular place. Robert Finch writes of its beaches: “No other place I know sears the heart with such a constant juxtaposition of pleasure and pain, of beauty being born and destroyed in the same moment.” And nowhere within its borders is this truth more vivid and dramatic than along the forty miles of Atlantic coast—what Finch has always known as the Outer Beach. The essays here represent nearly fifty years and a cumulative thousand miles of walking along the storied edge of the Cape’s legendary arm. Finch considers evidence of nature’s fury: shipwrecks, beached whales, towering natural edifices, ferocious seaside blizzards. And he ponders everyday human interactions conducted in its environment with equal curiosity, wit, and insight: taking a weeks-old puppy for his first beach walk; engaging in a nocturnal dance with one of the Cape’s fabled lighthouses; stumbling, unexpectedly, upon nude sunbathers; or even encountering out-of-towners hoping an Uber will fetch them from the other side of a remote dune field. Throughout these essays, Finch pays tribute to the Outer Beach’s impressive literary legacy, meditates on its often-tragic history, and explores the strange, mutable nature of time near the ocean. But lurking behind every experience and observation—both pivotal and quotidian—is the essential question that the beach beckons every one of its pilgrims to confront: How do we accept our brief existence here, caught between overwhelming beauty and merciless indifference? Finch’s affable voice, attentive eye, and stirring prose will be cherished by the Cape’s staunch lifers and erstwhile visitors alike, and strike a resounding chord with anyone who has been left breathless by the majestic, unrelenting beauty of the shore.

From one of America's most sensitive and fervent nature writers comes this classic of herbal lore and legend, now in paperback. This is not strictly a gardening book (although there is plenty for the gardener to learn in it) but a singular example of a man thinking about what he grows-not onlyhowit grows, but its roots in religion, Bible, history and medicine. The book was written at Beston's home, Chimney Farm, the Maine home- stead immortalized inNorthern Farm' where he repaired in 1931 with his wife, Elizabeth Coatsworth, and where he died in 1968. Beston described his efforts as part garden book, part musing study of our relation to nature through the oldest group of plants knowntogardeners.But, asRogerSwainobservesinhismoving introduction, Herbs and the Earthhas an intensity that evokes the herbs themselves, as if, pressed between the pages, their aroma has seeped into the pages. The book is lovingly illustrated with the strong and simple woodcuts of the great stone-cutter/ letter-designer/craftsman John Howard Benson
