Connecticut Coast is a richly illustrated exploration of the vast, varied, and unique heritage of the Connecticut coast. A surf-and-turf sampling of the Nutmeg State's storied shoreline, it covers twenty-four towns from New York State to Rhode Island with a compelling narrative by historian Diana Ross McCain and archival images from the Connecticut Historical Society. These towns have seen changes both transformative and trifling in the 370 years since the first Europeans arrived here. Images of assembly lines and roller coasters, circus elephants and "fat cat" entrepreneurs, battlefields and serene town greens are sure to evoke a kaleidoscope of memories. Also included are features on such shoreline icons as coastal fishing and shellfishing, lighthouses, coastal weather, and more.
