Product description from Amazon: ...When the age of sail faded, the town looked to a quieter life. Brewster, with its eleven miles of pristine beaches, became the perfect tourist destination.

It presents captivating photographs of the residents' struggle for existence as farmers, fisherman, and sailors. The book shows what the barbershop looked like and where the early residents of Brewster lived, played, and went to church. Brewster captures the charming moments of a time gone by.

Stay in a Cape Cod Timeshare Next Time You Visit! - A cheaper way to enjoy Cape Cod year after year

There are no guarantees in life, but there is a guarantee that you'll be able to use your timeshare year after year, should you purchase one. If you purchase a timeshare, you'll be able to enjoy the property you purchase for a full week, whichever week that might be. Cape Cod timeshares typically also trade out, should you wish to trade, for expensive properties ranging from Hawaii to Mexico.Yes, you'll pay the maintenance fee every year, but this should be far less than what you would pay for a week's hotel stay. You'll also have the benefit of making your own meals (most timeshares do have kitchens). Consider it money well spent!
