Nantucket's Hidden History
There's a lot more to Nantucket's history than the same old stories about whaling and sheep shearing. Take this book along with you to the beach and you just might learn a thing or two while you're working on your tan. And when you get tired of reading about Nantucket's Hidden History, it also makes a great sun visor for a quick snooze!

James Everett Grieder, a native Nantucketer, is the author of a number of articles about Nantucket's history, many of which are true, and is a regular contributor to Yesterday's Island magazine. He lives in the family homestead with his wife Katharine and his heir apparent, William Lewis Grieder. Oh, and cats, as well.
