Sallie Harding Saunders and her husband, Stacy Saunders, were pioneers in many ways. Sallie and Stacy eloped in 1909 and the life they created is the story presented here. They taught school in Puerto Rico. Sallie became a medical doctor and eventually the Director of Maternal and Child Care in Massachusetts. She was responsible for innovations and legislation to provide care for premature infants. Stacy lost his eyesight yet graduated from law school and began working on cases for Harvard University. After seventeen years of being blind a miraculous surgery restored his eyesight. The history of Sallie and Stacy intertwines with the towns of Medway, Hopedale and Winthrop, MA. The reader will find personalized accounts of hurricanes; notations about Winthrop's narrow gauge railroad; descriptions of the boat building business their son-in-law and grandson became involved with; and remembrances of the 1960 Electra plane crash as well as the special places they called home.

"This book is a guide to the study of the most marvelous structures ever built by humankind - wooden ships and boats. It is intended for nautical archaeologists and for anyone charged with documenting and interpreting the remains of wrecked or abandoned vessels. It will also be of value to historians, authors, model builders, and others interested in the design and construction of wooden watercraft of the past." "The text is divided into three parts. The first introduces the discipline and presents enough basic information to permit the untrained reader to understand the analysis of ship and boat construction that follows. Part II is broken into three chapters that investigate ancient, medieval, and post-medieval shipwrecks and supporting documentation. Not all of the world's ship and boat excavations can be included, in this single volume; nautical archaeology has progressed two far for that. Instead, these three chapters have been assembled to represent a cross section of ship building technology as seen through the interpretation of a select group of finds." "Part III addresses the techniques of recording hull remains, assembling archival information, reconstructing vessels, and converting data into plans and publication. It is by no means a "how-to" section. Sites, logistics, and the wrecks themselves vary so much that, like wooden ship building, this discipline can never become an exact science. Rather, the third part of the book discusses work done on previous projects and suggests additional methods that might prove helpful to readers in their own endeavors." "The book contains an illustrated glossary, specifically designed for archaeological use. There is also a select bibliography annotated where titles do not indicate content and arranged in historical groups to provide sources for most areas of research."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

People seem inexorably drawn to live near water, but rising prices for waterfront land have made that an impossible dream for most. There is an alternative. Water-loving people of modest means have lived aboard houseboats for centuries, and why not? Unlike expensive, cramped, and hard-to-build liveaboard cruising boats, spacious, homey houseboats are easily and economically constructed from commmon lumberyard materials. And unlike those high-priced waterfront cottages, there's no lawn to mow and often no property taxes. And if you don't like the new neighbors, just up anchor and be off. This book tells those who would live afloat how to design and build their own place on the water. There are detailed plans and building instructions for sample houseboats; help with designing a personalized houseboat from scratch; resource-stingy contrivances for easing life aboard, including a solar oven, a windmill-powered washing machine, and innovative power-, water-, and waste-management systems; and more. "Handmade Houseboats" will help you build a self-sufficient and economical floating home that generates its own power, deals with its own waste, and leaves no scar upon the Earth.

There are fewer than 10,000 wooden boats in America, but the circulation of WoodenBoat magazine exceeds 180,000. What is it about these boats that has captured the popular imagination? With his "lively blend of reportage [and] reflection" (Los Angeles Times), Michael Ruhlman sets off for a renowned boatyard in Martha's Vineyard to follow the construction of two boats-Rebecca, a 60-foot modern pleasure schooner, and Elisa Lee, a 32-foot powerboat. Filled with exquisite details and stories of the sea, this exciting exploration of a nearly forgotten craft and the colorful personalities involved will enthrall wooden boat owners as well as craftspeople of every stripe, nature enthusiasts, and fans of compelling nonfiction.
