Overview
Martha's Vineyard is a celebrated vacation haven captivating visitors from long-term summer residents to recent daytrippers. Among the Island's ardent admirers are Ray Ellis, whose memorable paintings created over a 25-year period depict his love of the Vineyard, and Ralph Graves, whose lively, affectionate history spans 400 years. Featuring 100 of Ray Ellis's luminescent oils and watercolors, this book provides a unique appreciation of the Island's delights. Rounding out this marvelous pictorial album is a fascinating text by Ralph Graves. He has written a concise history from its discovery in 1602 by an English explorer, Bartholomew Gosnold, whose reason for naming the Island Martha has yet to be discovered, to its present-day active conservation efforts. The memoir also includes interviews with five long-time residents who provide insightful, firsthand accounts of their special connection to the Island.
