Praise

“This book is an enormous gift, an act of preservation as important as any chunk of land purchased by the Nature Conservancy.”
—Bill McKibben

“For people who truly live there, Cape Cod is not a place but a religion. And for many, the environmentalist John Hay is its prophet.”
—Amanda Heller, Boston Globe

“A tender, luminous book . . . a picture of the young writer as pilgrim, seeking to connect with a living tradition even as it slips away, and in the process, discovering a new story of his own.”
—John Tallmadge, Orion
