Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine a place of unspoiled beaches, windswept dunes, and dramatic natural beauty. A place free of traffic lights and blaring commercial come-ons. A place whose rich historical heritage is visible everywhereand#151;from the antiques-shop windows filled with handmade baskets and scrimshawed ivories to the spare, shingle-clad houses that coexist harmoniously with the surrounding land- and seascapes. Imagine a place designed, by man and nature, to relax and restore you.

and#160;

Nantucket Island is that place. Thirty miles off Cape Cod, Nantucket is both geographically isolated andand#151;as an internationally regarded vacation resortand#151;culturally sophisticated. Nantucketers are rightly proud of a manner of living that couples the casual comforts of small-town life with an urbane sense of glamour, taste, and style.

and#160;

In this handsomely illustrated book, longtime Nantucket residents Leslie Linsley and Terry Pommett give you an insiderand#8217;s look at the on-island lifestyle: the restored historic homes of Nantucket town and and#8217;Sconset village, the appealingly humble beachfront cottages that dot the islandand#8217;s shoreline, and the beautifully tended gardensand#151;formal and informaland#151;that grace Nantucketand#8217;s private houses and public buildings. More than 200 color photos document the other attractionsand#151;panoramic views, home-grown handicrafts, seasonal celebrations and#151;that make Nantucket such a rewarding place to spend a day, a summer, or a lifetim
