Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Cape Cod and the Islands is a different kind of beach book—one that lets you feel the sand between your toes without getting any in your shoes. The book measures only 5 by 7 inches yet manages to pack in 200 panoramic photographs..." ~Reader's Digest

After an all-too-brief visit to this area (from Australia), this terrific book now becomes a permanent record of many more places than I was able to visit - and hopefully an incentive to plan another trip! Just wonderful!

I am so impressed with this book. My daughter and her family live in the Boston area. This book makes me feel like I am out there. The pictures are just gorgeous. I am going to send a copy to my son-in-law for Christmas. I'm sure he will like it.
