Review ... from The Cape Cod Times

"Seashore Sentinel: The Old Harbor Lifesaving Station on Cape Cod," Richard G. Ryder (Lifesaving Service Markers, ISBN 978-0-9816873-4-6, 120 pages, $12)

You couldn't find a better guide to the Old Harbor Lifesaving Station, originally sited in Chatham, but now in Provincetown. Author Dick Ryder comes from a long line of Cape Codders and is the author of an earlier book on the station, "Old Harbor Station — Cape Cod," now out of print. This new book tells a thorough story of the history of the station and how the men who ran the station lived their lives constantly watchful of the sea. Loaded with photographs and illustrations, the book also includes an extensive bibliography for further reading.

I notce that the out of print book By D. Ryder is available on Amazon in the UK. I will be looking to add both books to my collection in the near future.

"There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."
