Item description for Islands of Boston Harbor by Edward Rowe Snow & Jeremy D'Entremont...

Commonwealth Editions is proud to reissue The Islands of Boston Harbor, Snow's first book, in recognition of the centennial of Snow's birth. The first (1935) edition resulted from research Snow did at Harvard under the tutelage of the great maritime historian Samuel Eliot Morison. The book covers the history and legends of virtually every island and rock in the harbor, including Boston Light and Graves Light. When the 1971 edition of the book was published, a critic for the Boston Post wrote, "Mr. Snow has the gift of making his subject vivid and personal in its anecdotal touches. . . . It is a volume of chatty yet dignified essays, with many a light touch brought in." This centennial edition contains the complete 1971 text, with annotations by Jeremy D'Entremont to bring the information up to date.

Reviews - What do customers think about Islands of Boston Harbor?

Must Read  Jul 4, 2004
Edward Rowe Snow holds a place in my heart. I remember when I was younger and taking the tours of Boston Harbor with this extrodanary historian.

I had the first edition of this book and was lost to me when I was young. Every books store would say, "Sorry, this book is unavaiable, or out of print." I am very glad they re-released these treasures.

This book has the ledgend of the Lady in Black of George's Island.

Read if you are interested in New England History or you are from Boston. Great Book.
