Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Catalogue of Plants: Growing Without Cultivation in the County of Nantucket, Mass The County of Nantucket comprises the islands of Nantucket, Tuckernuck and Muskeget, and a small group called Gravelly Islands. A list of their plants, including the marine algae growing in the surrounding waters or washed up on their shores, is attempted in the following pages. The islands are separated by channels from an eighth of a mile to half a mile in width, and may be considered geologically as but one. This island county is part of the extreme terminal moraine of the ice-sheet that covered the northern part of our continent during the glacial period, and is a series of morainic hills bordered on the south by sloping plains of gravel and sand. The hills are from forty to fifty feet high at Madeket, at the west end of Nantucket, and sink lower from there to Muskeget, while they rise towards the east. They reach the height of 91 feet in the highest of Sauls Hills, and of 105 feet at Sancoty Head, the highest land on the island. The formation is almost wholly stratified gravel and sand, deposited at the margin of the ice by streams that flowed down from its surface; but in the region of Sauls Hills, bowlders are scattered upon and in it, varying from a small size up to ten feet in diameter. The pine barrens, although farther south, are of similar structure, and Nantucket, as regards its flora, seems like a piece of New Jersey moved up the coast for the convenience of northern amateurs in botany, who cannot get away from business long enough to go collecting in that state. The writer has not been able to obtain any report of the productions of Muskeget and Gravel uninhabited islands and Mr. L.L. Dame has ransacked Tuckernuck without finding anything new; the most noticeable thing was the quantity of a common milk-weed (Asclepias obtusifolia), which was growing more profusely than he had ever seen it in any one locality before. What follows, then, relates solely to Nantucket, the large island of the county, with an area of about fifty square miles.
