By Cary Hazlegrove,Introduction by David Halberstam

A tiny haven 30 miles off the coast of Massachusetts, Nantucket is one of America's few remaining island treasures. From its cheerful, red cranberry bogs in the fall and the quiet desolation of winter to its profusion of daffodils in the spring and warm, sunny beaches in summer, Nantucket lends itself perfectly to the camera's lens. In this evocative volume, longtime resident and renowned photographer Cary Hazlegrove has captured the essence of Nantucket with a selection of her most memorable images of the island -- a breathtaking aerial view of a beach, a charming detail of cobblestones, the striking composition of a lighthouse, a heartbreaking sweep of the moors. Accompanied by poignant, often humorous quotes from Nantucket locals and a thoughtful introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and part-time resident David Halberstam, this book provides a constant source of dreams and inspirations.
