The book starts with A Battle at Stage Harbor, which explores how Cape Cod became part of New England rather than New France. It finishes with The Adventures of Captain Baxter, about the legendary exploits of a West Dennis captain. An especially moving story is Hannah Rebecca Burgess, Navigator, a tragic tale of love and adventure on the high seas. After the untimely death of her husband, a ship captain, young Hannah Burgess is forced to navigate a clipper ship full of cargo back to port-a feat virtually unheard-of for a woman of her era. These stories illustrate the kind of character and determination that has made Cape Cod great. Included are tales about the invention of commercial salt-making from sea water, the initiation of the banana trade, and Cape Codders sailing the world.
