New Street Nautical Audio Publishes Major Work on the History of Nantucket Sound
Theresa Mitchell Barbo's critically-acclaimed consideration of Nantucket Sound as a center of maritime commerce and recreation through the centuries now available in audio format.
An ancient fishing ground, vital shipping passage and final resting place for those unable to navigate its rocky shoals, Nantucket Sound—bordered by Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and, of course, Nantucket—remains one of New England’s most vibrant and beautiful waterways.
Here, the first rays of morning sunlight touch the United States before sweeping westward. In fact, the area’s early inhabitants were called Wampanoag: “People of the Dawn.”
From whaling culture and infamous shipwrecks to legends of Vikings, sea gods and John Smith, author Theresa Mitchell Barbo unearths the many fascinating stories hidden beneath these rough and often treacherous waters.
At once unforgiving and generous, Nantucket Sound has seduced countless seafarers with its siren song, and today still overflows with diverse marine life.
Nantucket Sound: A Maritime History includes an incisive Foreword by Congressman Bill D. Delahunt. Running time is 3 hours, 16 minutes, and the audiobook is available from Audible, iTunes and Amazon.
