Nantucket: The Ultimate Playground

Schiffer. Feb. 2023. 272p. ISBN 9780764364761. $50. TRAV
After the near-death experience of bringing her son into the world, Moss, a travel writer, photographer, and lawyer, found new inspiration from her seasonal home on the island of Nantucket, MA. Collaborating with portrait and wedding photographer Love, the two utilized their talents to bring this beautiful island to life through numerous high-quality photographs and local intel. Their book offers a multitude of visuals of the island, rather than in-depth travel information, but it does highlight specific small businesses and tourist sights. Broad section themes (food; activities; festivals) help readers understand the vibe and culture of Nantucket. Parenting on Nantucket is a focus too, and the book shows kid-friendly aspects of the island through its fun photographs. Adults are not forgotten, as many of the island’s features are enjoyable by both young and old. Nantucket is shown as a unique safe place that is fun for everyone in the family.
VERDICT Both casual readers and well-seasoned travelers will likely enjoy this title. Perfect for collections with photography, travel guides, or New England sections.
