Fascinating Stories from Nantucket History

Nantucket Historical Association

On This Day in Nantucket History is a new book by Nantucketer Amy Jenness.  It serves up quirky, fascinating, and informative stores about people and events that have shaped the island's history.  Jenness has written for many island publications, and currently is on the staff of the Nantucket Atheneum.  She talked to WCAI's Dan Tritle about why so many people have found a home on the island.
