The book covers county services, socio-economic activities (agriculture, politics, transportation, tourism, etc.), and intellectual and cultural activity. There is a speculative essay about the future, interesting to review nearly 30 years on.
There are four appendices:
- County officials
- Organizations (yes, we are listed)
- Chronology of Cape Cod Libraries (begins with Brewster Ladies Library, 1853)
- Profiles of Cape Cod Towns
If you are interested in background information on Cape Cod institutions, this book would make a good starting point. Come to the Genealogy Room and have a look-see!
