Product Description
Customer Reviews
New Jersey’s historic Cape May County, on a peninsula situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay, was named for Cornelis Mey (later May), a Dutch captain who sailed past her shores in the early 1600s. English-speaking whalers and farmers from New England settled here in the late 1600s, buying large tracts they called plantations. Shipbuilding became an important industry in the 19th century, employing hundreds who crafted sloops and schooners used for coastal trading. Although Cape Island (now Cape May City) was advertised in the late 1700s as a popular, healthy place for sea bathing, the barrier islands remained largely uninhabited until train service from Philadelphia was established in 1863. With thousands of visitors arriving daily by rail during the summer season, the seaside resorts of Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Strathmere, Avalon, Stone Harbor, and the Wildwoods blossomed. Today, tourism is the county’s largest industry, as vacationers enjoy both its 30 miles of beaches and the mainland’s quaint historic villages.

Due North is a collection of travel observations, reflections, and snapshots across colors, cultures, and continents by award-winning travel writer and photographer Lola Akinmade Åkerström.<br /><br /><strong><u>Praise for Due North</u></strong><br /><br /><em><br />“It would have been enough for Lola Akinmade Åkerström to simply share her gift through her photographs. That she chose to also share her unique insights and the stories behind those incredible photos is our luck. In Due North, her curious spirit shines through, along with her journalistic abilities to quickly read the people she meets and attempt to understand each world she enters. With each story, you sense her initial feelings of “other” and move with her to notions of understanding. She brings a humanness to the page and you feel completely cared for as she guides you through immediately relatable stories in distant lands. This book isn’t one you’ll be able to read quickly. Each of these stories deserve a cup of tea and a Sunday morning.”...<strong>Heather Greenwood Davis, Award-winning travel writer and contributing editor at National Geographic Traveler</strong><br /><br />“Lola makes you want more than just to explore the world. Her stories incite your desire to travel deeply, form connections with people, and live life with her openness and love for all people. The joy that is Lola’s photography punctuates each gorgeous story from her life. It will move you as you can’t help but think ‘I want to go there!’”...<strong>Leigh Shulman, Author, writing coach and founder of Creative Revolution writing retreats for women</strong><br /><br />“Due North is a book of color, poetry, and love—a love for places, objects, and losing oneself in the greatness of the globe. Lola has a magic eye for all beauty, both simple and strange, and she shares it so well. This is an uplifting book made for all those who desire for more beauty in their lives. Surely, it is a gift to see the world through Lola’s eyes.”...<strong>Andrew Evans, Award-winning author, travel writer, and TV host, National Geographic Channel</strong></em>

Known as Penataquit among the Secatogue Indians, Bay Shore was established in 1708. Since then, the hamlet of Bay Shore has developed a rich heritage through embracing the tapestry of multiculturalism and utilizing its natural resources to build a vibrant, enduring community. Residents have borne witness to the American Revolution, the rise and fall of the fishing industry, the boom and bust of the Gilded Age, the impact of deinstitutionalization, and community revitalization. From Bay Shore’s beginning, the community has birthed artists, activists, athletes, industrialists, laborers, and politicians. The heirs of this 26,000-person hamlet’s heritage continue to build and define the place as a viable community in the 21st century.

The first known written description of Mount Magazine came from Thomas Nuttall, a noted English botanist, in 1819. Since then, the highest mountain in Arkansas has come to mean many things to many people. To the first settlers of European descent, it was a place to scratch out a living and raise a family through hard work and hardships. To those enduring the Great Depression, it meant jobs. The end of World War II brought numerous outdoor activities. Adventurous recreationists found many ways for the mountain to challenge their abilities. Scientists studying its biological communities discovered unique fauna and flora. Finally, the past two decades have combined all those attributes in the development of Mount Magazine State Park.

The native people, known today as the Sinagua, inhabited the Verde Valley of Arizona for centuries. From around 700 AD to early 1400 AD, they farmed the land and built large pueblo communities throughout the area. They accomplished this task using only primitive stone tools, materials from their environment, and the strength of their intellect and muscle. One of the largest communal dwellings, and later the most extensively excavated, is called Tuzigoot. This sprawling, hilltop complex contained over 100 rooms and was once home to several hundred people before it was mysteriously abandoned. Excavated and partially restored between 1933 and 1934, Tuzigoot is currently administered by the National Park Service after being designated a national monument by Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939. Today, although off the beaten track, it hosts more than 100,000 visitors a year.
