9780932027931: The Other Islanders: People Who Pulled Nantucket's Oars

Contrary to what public records and popular literature might lead us to believe, Nantucket is historically an island of rich cultural diversity. Here, author Frances Ruley Karttunen introduces us to the original Nantucketers--the Wampanoags--as well as the African slaves, Pacific Islanders, Irish refugees, Azoreans and Cape Verdean immigrants and other ethnic groups that have contributed to the island's history and added dimension to Nantucket's culture.
