Life Saving Nantucket
by Edouard A. Stackpole
Stackpole was among the earliest to recognize that an era had passed and, without documentation, would soon be forgotten. Life Saving Nantucket documents the triumphs and tragedies of a hardy breed of islanders who, as volunteers, manned the early Massachusetts Humane Society sites, later the U.S. Life-Saving Service stations and still later the U.S. Coast Guard stations, saving countless lives and precious cargo.
