"A photographic tribute to Connecticut's maritime roots both past and present. The book takes readers on a nautical journey exploring the many ways Nutmeggers use the state's lakes, rivers, sounds, and shores for industry, education, and recreation. From boat builders, to antique, power and sailing vessels, to lobster shacks, the oyster and fishing industries, historic ferries, nautical arts, lighthouses and islands, charter boats, maritime festivals and celebrations, and more, this book showcases how these waterways have defined Connecticut culture"-- Provided by publisher.
