Annotation: Cape Cod's vast outer coast is little changed since the Pilgrims' first landfall almost 350 years ago. Today a plane can skim its fifty miles in a matter of seconds, and in the summer bathing areas are so crowded with cars and people they take on a continental flavor. In these unforgettable pages a noted naturalist and author brings to life a breathtakingly vivid world of sand, wildlife, sun, shipwrecks, and sea.

Publisher Description:
Cape Cod's vast outer coast, named The Great Beach by Henry David Thoreau, is little changed since the Pilgrim's first landfall almost 350 years ago. Today a plane can skim its fifty miles in a matter of seconds, and in the summer bathing areas are so crowded with cars and people they take on a continental flavor. But the long, desolate, windswept stretches can still be found, and the National Park Service has been taking steps to preserve the original character of the beach and its rolling dunes back from the water, designating it a National Seashore.

Contributor Bio(s): Hay, John: - John Hay (1915-2011) was the author of The Run, The Undiscovered Country, The Immortal Wilderness, and other books on nature.
