Local writer and poet Ronald Harrison Fenn has culled through 15 volumes of journals, and five collections of poetry to hand select both prose and poetic reflections of Cape Cod written over the past half-century of his life here. Journal entries, poems, personal anecdotes and commentaries will be included to spark each person's attention and perhaps reflect their personal attraction to this beautiful landscape.

A Cape Cod resident, Mr. Fenn is semi-retired, devoting most of his time to writing poems, his journals, correspondence, and traveling. He has been a guest lecturer at various, civic organizations, public schools, colleges, and post-graduate institutes of higher learning with topics ranging from poetry and early American history to critical thinking skills.
