During the last thirty years, many of the more remote and isolated sections of New England have become popular with summer tourists and cottagers. Cape Cod has shared in this invasion from visitors and yet has maintained, to a large extent, its natural outlines of landscape and many of its primitive customs. Groups of cottages have been built along the coast where formerly was only a sandy beach without any sign of human life. The hamlets and villages of fifty years ago Truro, Chatham, Provincetown, Yarmouth are now active towns, reaping commercial benefits from tourists. In spite of such changes, the aspects of nature and the traits of the native inhabitants are still akin to those described by Thoreau, half a century ago, in his graphic narrative, Cape Cod.
