About The Book
I Am of Cape Cod: People and Their Stories is the first book to celebrate the ordinary people, natives and washashores, who make their lives on Cape Cod and the special connection that they feel with the region. John and Kim drove the length and breadth of Cape Cod to all fifteen towns, from Provincetown to Sandwich, to interview and photograph the 139 individuals that appear on these pages. The selection of subjects collectively represents a cross section of Cape Codders—every type, size, shape, age, and lifestyle. Here are the fishermen, artists, politicians, scientists, farmers, entrepreneurs, environmental activists, writers, and others who give the Cape its particular character and spirit. Each shares a personal and moving story about what living on the Cape means to them. In addition to black-and-white portraits, the book features an opening section of evocative color photographs depicting iconic Cape Cod landscapes and scenes, which creates a visual context within which to better understand the powerful bond that exists between the place and its inhabitants.
