“This book is a treasure.”
Bill Perkins Madaket

“I thought I knew a lot about Nantucket and I do but there is a lot I do not know and this book confirms it.”
William Coffee, Nantucket

“A treasure trove of delight for those on Nantucket! For the rest of us, it’s a sensational sightseer’s guide, bar none!”
Anne Roberts,  Scituate MA


This book lays out a significant base of knowledge for Nantucket, including famous men and women who have made significant contributions. A section entitled “Do You Know?” tests the reader on their knowledge of some places, and people. The photographs in the book will assess the reader’s knowledge of buildings, places and objects that are commonly seen but not necessarily recognized for what they are, and there is a trivia section that is always fun. There is a section on beaches with special attention paid to the hidden or secret beaches on Nantucket.

The book ends with the “Treasures” of the Nantucket. These are the institutions and places that make Nantucket a remarkable place to visit, live in and work. Melissa has made these determinations herself and realize that others may have a different list, but that is ok. Some are cultural, some are natural, but each contributes to a quality of life that is unique to Nantucket and its places and people who have something distinct and appealing to offer everyone.
