About this title

Synopsis:

This first-hand account of Walter Cronkite's voyage in and out of Northeastern ports, from Cape May to the Canadian border, is enhanced by watercolor and oil paintings depicting the seacoast and its inhabitants

From Library Journal:

Like its popular companion book by Cronkite and Ellis, South by Southeast ( LJ 8/83), this effort is distinguished by its 110 color illustrations by Ellis. It is they that capture the charm and character of our northeast coast. From Victorian Cape May, N.J. to Maine's rocky coast the journey is more than 1000 miles of open ocean, bays, sounds, estuaries, and rivers. As we go up the coast, Cronkite mixes a smattering of history and accounts of his sailing experiences with a reporting of current conditions. Despite observing the post-World War II ruination of much of Long Island and the despoliation of Cape Cod's Provincetown, the trip is a very pleasant one as New Jersey beaches, New York City, Mystic Seaport, Block Island, and Nantucket, among other locales, still entrance.
