Description

The Isles of Shoals, a group of small islands located six miles off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire, is a remote and wild place. Before Europeans established fishing communities there in the 17th and 18th centuries, it was a hunting and fishing ground for native Americans. All that changed in the 19th century when a number of resort hotels were built. So, what prompted hundreds of people to pack their trunks and spend the summer at the Isle of Shoals? And why do people continue to explore the natural beauty of the Shoals today? Join historian Ann Beattie to find out.
