Off the picturesque shoreline of New Hampshire and Maine lie eight islands collectively known as the Isles of Shoals. Since the famous English explorer John Smith first set foot on them in 1614, the Isles of Shoals have experienced numerous changes. The once thriving fishing communities suffered many hard years before and after the American Revolution. Since the 1800s, the Isles of Shoals have been revived as a place where travelers, artists and writers can find inspiration and relaxation. The austere beauty of the rocky shores has influenced such notable figures as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Childe Hassam, Sarah Orne Jewett and the poet laureate of the islands, Celia Laighton Thaxter, as well as lesser-known fishers and fishwives, sailors and visitors of the past and present. In this volume, Russell M. Lawson has evoked the fascinating history of the islands, from their discovery to the end of the nineteenth century. It is a must-read for all "Shoalers" who, like the hardy mariners and inspired artists of the past, follow the call of the sea to the Isles of Shoals.
