Frantisek Josef Benedikt Dusík:The Biography of an Eighteenth-Century Composer Specula Spectacula Matjaz Barbo, Inge Praxl
An ancient fishing ground, vital shipping passage and final resting place for those unable to navigate its rocky shoals, Nantucket Sound - bordered by Martha´s Vineyard, Cape Cod and, of course, Nantucket - remains one of New England´s most historic waterways. Here, the first rays of morning sunlight touch the United States before sweeping westward. In fact, the area´s early inhabitants were called Wampanoag: ´People of the Dawn.´ From whaling culture and infamous shipwrecks to legends of Vikings, sea gods, and John Smith, local author Theresa Mitchell Barbo unearths the stories hidden beneath these rough waves. At once unforgiving and generous, Nantucket Sound has seduced countless seafarers with its siren song but still overflows with diverse marine life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Quinlan.

European explorers were captivated by the seemingly endless bounty of natural resources on Cape Cod Bay. One Englishman declared that the codfish were so thick one could walk on their backs. Early settlers quickly learned how to harness the bay´s resources and excelled at shore whaling, shipping and salt making. But as these new industries flourished, the native Wampanoag, who helped the fledgling colony to take root, nearly vanished. Author Theresa Mitchell Barbo´s skillful narrative weaves together the natural and cultural histories of the bay, highlighting some of the region´s diverse milestones- from the drafting of the Mayflower Compact in 1620 to the establishment of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant 350 years later. Cape Cod Bay: A History of Salt & Sea inspires new appreciation for this storied and stunning seascape, and underscores the importance of new efforts to preserve the bay´s unique ecosystem. 1.
