Don Wilding does a superb job of depicting Henry Beston's view of Cape Cod and the it's importance in establishing a National Seashore. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves Cape Cod or simply admires all of the sights and sounds of the beach!

This is a small biography of Beston, but it doesn't discuss in detail how his book influenced legislation or legislators. Some interesting photography.
