Compiled from magazine articles published in the 1850s after his death, these chapters detail several short trips Thoreau made to ""the bare and bended arm of Massachusetts"" between 1849 and 1855. Encounters with the ocean dominate the book, from the fatal shipwreck of the opening episode to the late reflections on the Pilgrims' Cape Cod landing and reconnaissance. Along the way, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, lighthouse-keepers and ship-captains, and their chronicles of exploration, settlement, and survival on the Cape.
