This richly illustrated book is the first devoted to scenic Third Cliff, a magical meeting place of land, river, and sea, and to those who have called it home. It traces the transformation of seacoast Scituate from a colonial town of the 1600s into a summer destination of the 1900s, and the conversion of farmland into summer colonies.
- The people, places, and stories of a notable community in a historic seacoast town
- Home to amazing people -- farmers, golfers, Irish mossers, the first maker of portable houses, and the influential Welch family
- Highly readable, over 300 pages of deep research
- More than 140 images, some rare, with looks at and inside "Welch colonial" houses
- Already acclaimed by academics, hailed by historians, and eagerly anticipated by residents
