Chatham: From the Second World War to the Age of Aquarius
by Debra Lawless
Between the town's bicentennial celebration in 1912 and the start of the Second World War, Chatham was transformed from an undiscovered fishing village into a popular tourist destination. As hemlines rose and an old way of life began to collapse, a curious cast of characters put Chatham on the national map.
Picking up where Chatham in the Jazz Age left off, Chatham: From the Second World War to the Age of Aquarius is an exciting new book by Debra Lawless that explores the history of Chatham, from the beginning of the Second World War to the end of the 1960s.
Chatham Sea Captains in the Age of Sail
by Joseph P. Nickerson
Chatham Sea Captains in the Age of Sail" chronicles the lives and adventures of twenty-five men who traveled the seas from the eighteenth through the twentieth century. These were extraordinary men, masters of navigation, who charted paths from the Cape to the Far East with their regal clipper ships; deep-sea fishermen whose fearless spirit drove them to the Grand Banks and Newfoundland in the quest for their catch; and coastal captains who skirted America's eastern seaboard in pursuit of trade. Spurred on by the Industrial Revolution's demands, these mariners continued their pelagic exploration while pirates, privateers and Confederate raiders tested their mettle. The sea was both foe and ally. To meet the foe was the challenge; to sail her waters and return home as true masters was the force that drove these men to excellence.
