"To a greater degree than any other, Nantucket possesses the special virtues of the American village, and the purpose of this book is to catch as far as possible the particular charm of this little island town, its rich history, with its traditions, its characters, its streets and wharves and houses, and its surrounding moors. She wears her burden of the years gracefully with a sort of lavender and old lace dignity. Once the mistress of a great and heroic industry, the sperm whale fishery, she is now in 'reduced circumstances'. Like many another lady of the old regime, she is now obliged to take in 'paying guests' for a living. But she has not forgotten her past, and she has actually gained in beauty. Indeed, she is very well worth knowing. May I introuduce you, Gentle Reader, to the Little Grey Lady of the Sea ? .
