Summary The celebrated history of Nantucket's great whaling days often overshadows the fascinating changes that took place in the years following. Discover the story behind the Nantucket Civil War Monument -- and learn about some named on it, some left off and some who may not belong. Meet the Cold Water Army of seven hundred schoolchildren who paraded against King Alcohol in hopes that the island would become a temperance oasis. Little remains of the bathing pavilion and water slide of the long-lost town of Coatue that once had big plans for expansion. With surprising facts and captivating tales, authors Frank Morral and Barbara Ann White explore these and other lost accounts of the faraway island.
