Preface
LLTHOUGH
I
HAVE
MADE
THIS
BOOK
A
GUIDE
TO
PLACES
AND
THINGS
to
see
on
Cape
Cod,
my
primary
aim
has
been
to
tell
the
story
of
the
Cape.
To
me,
sightseeing
becomes
truly
entertaining
only
when
we
have
some
understanding
of
a
region
and
its
people.
It
is
the
happeningsbehind
the
landmark
that
give
it
real
interest,
and
people
make
things
happen,
so
I
have
started
with
the
people.
Considering
the
number
of
books
that
have
been
written
about
this
little
strip
of
land,
it
is
surprisingthat
never
before
has
its
story
been
told
town
by
town
as
it
is
in
these
pages.
No
worth-while
Cape
Cod
guidebook
has
been
published
in
nearly
twenty
years.
By
examining
some
of
the
old
tales
with
a
skeptical
eye
and
doing
fresh
research
I
have
been
able
to
correct
a
few
chronic
errors
which
have
always
plagued
suchbooks
the
Hippogriffe
"Rock"
episode,
for
example,
and
the
aberrations
in-
volved
in
the
romance
of
Colonel
John
Thacher
and
Lydia
Gor-
ham.
And
according
to
the
Orleans
Cape
Codders
editors,
who
helped
me
with
the
facts
concerning
the
German
U-boat
attack
in
World
War
I,
mine
may
well
be
the
first
really
accurate
account
of
that
episode
to
appear
in
a
book.
As
for
new
material,
pleasant
hours
spent
with
old
Cape
Cod-
ders
in
nearly
every
township
have
yielded
many
yarns
never
be-
foreprinted.
No
doubtmost
readers
will
have
a
favorite
town
the
one
where
they
live,
or
have
a
summer
place,
orgenerally
visit.
Each
town's
chapter
may
be
read
without
reference
to
anything
else
in
the
book,
but
a
reading
of
the
book's
first
section,
thegeneral
story,
 
Vi
PREFACE
will
Increase
the
reader's
understanding
of
the
individual
town
chapters.

The
hardest
thing
of
all
in
doing
a
book
like
this
one
is
to
stop.
One
oldtimer
leads
to
another,
and
each
has
a
story
to
add.
I
wish
I
could
keep
right
on
collecting
their
stories
and
set
them
all
down,
