Carly Simon and James Taylor have written songs about it while others have written books about it. As much a state of mind as a place, Martha's Vineyard holds an allure both for its residents - celebrities such as Simon, Jackie Onassis - and the countless tourists who visit the island every year. This book looks at the island, the sweeping lawns, split-level fences and stone walls leading to the island's elegant homes and gardens. In the tradition of "Nantucket" the book reveals the Vineyard in all its glory - the residences of the 19th-century whaling captains, West Chop's shingle-style houses, lush gardens, rooms full of antiques, cabanas on the beach and Vinyard farms.
