about this item

Behind the mansions and presidential vacations of Martha’s Vineyard hide the lost stories and forgotten events of small-town America. What was the island’s role in the Underground Railroad? Why do chickens festoon Nancy Luce’s grave? And how did the people of the Vineyard react in 1923 when the rumrunning ship John Dwight sank with the island’s supply of liquor aboard? Delve deep below the surface of history to discover the origin and meaning of local place names and the significance of beloved landmarks. Celebrated local historian Thomas Dresser unearths the little-known stories that laid the foundations for the community of Martha’s Vineyard.
