Item description for Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands: A Guide to the City's Hidden Shores by Christopher Klein...

The Boston Harbor Islands are experiencing unprecedented visitation, finally assuming their rightful place as Bostons backyard. Rich with history, over 150 full-color photographs, maps, and illustrations, and a resource section devoted to the recreational offerings surrounding the harbor islands, Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands is an indispensable guide to help you plan your island adventures. Explore the military installations that protected Boston during wartime including Fort Warren, home of Confederate prisoners during the Civil War. Visit Boston Light on Little Brewster, site of the nations oldest lighthouse. Kayak into the coves where pirates and bootleggers once hid. Wander the meadows that were the camps of Native Americans and the sites of Revolutionary skirmishes. Sail to the outer islands, a spectacular ocean wilderness. Find the best year-round fishing spots and discover why the islands are a birders paradise. Dive amid century-old shipwrecks or climb to the top of Spectacle Island for an altogether different view of the Boston skyline. Take in a jazz concert, an antique baseball game, or simply hop from one island to the next to experience the stunning natural beauty of this most storied national park area. Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands is sure to resonate with new and veteran islanders.

Lots of info!  Sep 6, 2008
Great book with lots of information. Very well organized and easy to get through - especially when referring back to the book. Also filled with good information for visiting the islands in your own boat.
Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands  Jul 2, 2008
This book is a refreshing and interesting new look at the Islands. Chris Klein has brought the old and new history together in a way that holds your interest from cover to cover. I am familiar with the Islands and it was wonderful to learn more about their history. I was especially pleased with Chapter on Peddocks, since that is the Island where my heart is.
