#2 Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau

Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau
Cape Cod’ by Henry David Thoreau strikes a page-turning balance between sensory writing and an informative account of his journey through the area. His writing makes you feel as though the wind is brushing against your face and the ocean scent rife in your nostrils. The book, composing of essays Thoreau wrote during his visits in 1849, 1850, and 1853, was published in 1865 following his death (this version is the latest rerelease, 2012).

It draws comparisons in style to Bruce Chatwin’s ‘In Patagonia’, and the illustrations of his routes are very beautiful, and accompany the writing well. Leisurely paced, with vivid descriptions, it’s a great book to lose yourself in and learn more about this magnificent part of the world through the eyes of a journeyman in the middle of the 1800s.

Explorer's Guide Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, & Nantucket by Kim Grant
Explorer’s Guide Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, & Nantucket (Explorer’s Complete) by Kim Grant is the most comprehensive book about Cape Cod. One of, if not the most expensive book about Cape Code, but the price is evident of its quality.

Without this book, we would have missed many of the interesting places that we visited. Gems on here that are not shown on the local tourist leaflets.

This book has a good mix of facts and anecdotes managing to keep the reader curious and engaged throughout.
