Book Collecting March 4, 2016

In the course of researching my genealogy I seem to be finding more and more books to purchase.  Surprised?  Rather obscure and unexpected finds.  My latest acquisition is a book by Nathaniel Philbrick, well known for his book The Mayflower.  Mr. Philbrick, as you probably know, lives on the island of Nantucket where he has documented the history of the island and the whaling industry.   Three of my favorite topics – Nantucket, Whaling, Early Settlers

Away Off Shore, Nantucket Island and its People, 1602 – 1890
