Martha day Zschock, creator of the journey around series, turns her attention to another New England treasure, Nantucket. From the culture of the Wampanoag Indians who gave Nantucket its name it means faraway land to the early abolition of slavery in 1773, through the heyday of whaling in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the summer delights of the vacation mecca of today, Zschock traces the history of this special place with graceful turns of phrase and an unmatched artistry. Like previous volumes in the series, this is much more than an alphabet book. Each page is headed by an alliterative sentence that evokes an important theme of life on the island. The C page says, Crimson cranberries carpet conservation acres.
