9780971954717: Quabbin: A History and Explorer's Guide

This is the definitive history and contemporary explorer’s guide to the Quabbin Reservoir. Located in Central Massachusetts, the reservoir is an amazing wilderness with an equally amazing history. The Quabbin has 118 miles of undeveloped shoreline, with surrounding reservation spanning some 81,000 acres of protected open space. The great city of Boston gets all its water from the Quabbin/Ware River/Wachusett watersheds, as do 45 other communities in Massachusetts. This book explores topics such as building the Quabbin and how it works; hiking, wildlife viewing, biking, and fishing; visiting the region’s best waterfalls; Quabbin rules and regulations; as well as information on accommodations, restaurants, camping, orchards, swimming, golf, general stores, crafts, antiques, history, and more.

From the Publisher:

On Cape Publications focuses on producing value-creating books and maps on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket, so it took a very special opportunity to draw our focus "off Cape" and onto the mainland. "Quabbin" is that book. A hybrid publication, combining insightful history with an eclectic adventurers' guide, "Quabbin" is the kind of book that helps people understand and appreciate the wonders of the world around us. We are proud to have Michael Tougias as a part of our On Cape Publications family. He is a writer who loves the natural world in Massachusetts and New England as much as we do.

From the Author:

Of the 15 books I've written about New England, this one is my favorite! I love the Quabbin and I believe that there is something special there for everyone.
