Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This superb book introduces the reader to Cape Cod in all its splendor. Finch, author of Common Ground: A Naturalist's Cape Cod ( LJ 7/81) and Outlands: Journey to the Outer Edge of Cape Cod ( LJ 6/1/86), teamed up with photographer MacKenzie, and the result is a book of very high literary and photographic standard. The text is a collection of the author's personal reflections when climbing the dunes, walking the beaches, visiting historical sites, or on outings with family and friends. Finch is a vividly descriptive writer who emphasizes minute details, allowing the reader to personally experience the ambience of the Cape. Eight sections with superlative photographs describe the Cape during the various seasons, and cover the inland areas, coastline, local haunts, and more. This book is suitable for armchair travelers or would-be vacationers, and would make a worthwhile addition to any library travel section.-- Jo-Anne Mary Benson, Osgoode, Ontario
