More Description

Beginning with early images of Padanaram Harbor, On the Wind carries the viewer west to Rhode Island Sound and Newport, east to Mattapoisett, Marion, and harbors at the head of Buzzards Bay with the photographs of Norman Fortier. Succeeding chapters cover Martha's Vineyard and the offshore islands, the port of New Bedford and working craft, the grand spectacle that is the New York Yacht Club's annual summer cruise, and boats designed and built in South Dartmouth by the legendary Concordia Company. Printed entirely in duotone, this is a book about sailing and sailors, harbors and fishermen, selected from more than 100,000 negatives. It is also a moving and unforgettable evocation of a time and way of life that have already passed into memory.
