Edward Rowe Snow (1902-1982) is remembered as one of the most vivid chroniclers of New England maritime history. Beginning with the publication of The Islands of Boston Harbor in 1935, he made his name as a historian of the New England coast-and also as a popular storyteller, lecturer, preservationist, and treasure hunter. For forty years, Snow flew to the lighthouses of New England as the "Flying Santa," dropping Christmas parcels for the keepers and their families. A granite memorial to Edward Rowe Snow, "Mr. New England," on Georges Island in Boston Harbor was dedicated in 2002 by his many friends. Jeremy D'Entremont is a lighthouse historian, writer and photographer, and webmaster of "New England Lighthouses:  A Virtual Guide" at www.lighthouse.cc. Commonwealth Editions reissued A Pilgrim Returns to Cape Cod, one of Snow's most enduring classics, in recognition of the centennial of Snow's birth in August 1902. First published in 1946, Pilgrim is notable for what updater Jeremy D'Entremont calls "the sheer volume of colorful, dramatic, harrowing, and humorous history and legends." It is one of the most entertaining and satisfying works produced by the prolific "Mr. New England."
