Cape Cod Passage: A Novel of People and Events That Have Shaped the Narrow Land
By: Jim Coogan
Cape Cod Passage is a collection of over fifty stories about people and events that played a role in making Cape Cod what it is today. From the earliest time periods in the Cape’s history, readers will see the evolution of the Cape through such themes as the geologic origins, human migration patterns, the colonial period, Civil War, and maritime development right up to the contemporary issues of environmental degradation, shortage of affordable housing, economic inequality, and discrimination. Native Americans, Pilgrims, sea captains, slaves, artists, interesting characters, and writers are all featured with an equal balance between men and women and their respective Cape experiences.
Based on the author’s experience of growing up on Cape Cod and now with almost eighty years of living here, Jim Coogan’s Cape Cod Passage is a unique and interesting look at why the “narrow land” is such a much-beloved place. Thoroughly documented with notes and sources, Cape Cod Passage goes beyond just being a fictional account of Cape Cod history. It is how Cape Cod came to be through the eyes of those who made it so.
