Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, March 30, 2009

7 out of 10

I've read about the Isles of Shoals (mostly via Celia Thaxter's writings, which include her own gardens and an account of the dramatic murders that took place on Smuttynose in the late 1800s), and have wanted to visit them, but so far the closest I've come is seeing them from a whale-watch boat as we zipped by. When I saw this "Images of America" book about the isles at a local bookstore I couldn't resist.

Turns out that it's mostly photographs, with the informational text crammed into captions, but it's still an interesting overview of the isles. I was startled to see some of the notables who visited the Isles over time - Edwin Booth, for example...
