Synopses & Reviews
With more than a million visitors a year, Nantucket is a famed getaway, but only a few natives can attest to its mystic beauty in the fall and winter months. Among them is Cary Hazlegrove, whose Nantucket: The Quiet Season is the stunning follow-up to her celebrated Nantucket: Seasons on the Island. With Hazlegrove's signature photographs and evocative quotes from residents, this book captures what tourists rarely see: the island's hushed off-season life. Holiday hearths and cheery shopfronts provide warm refuge from chilly bogs and snow-blanketed dunes, revealing an island winter wonderland. With over one hundred images and a foreword by best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick, Nantucket: The Quiet Season offers a unique view of the island, allowing all to enjoy its multifaceted charm year-round.
Breathtaking color photographs by longtime Nantucket resident and renowned photographer Cary Hazlegrove are accompanied by poignant impressions from other residents and an introduction by Pulitzer prize-winning writer David Halberstam in this charming tribute to a special island and its ever-changing seasons.
