"This is a splendid book. Its deep research, masterful language, and thoughtful insights into an elite community’s fascinating cadre of progressives, in turbulent times much like our own, bring the women’s suffrage movement to life."
-- James B. Conroy, author of the prize-winning Lincoln’s White House: The People’s House in Wartime
"… a fascinating account of the emergence of late nineteenth century summer colonies, their growth, and subsequent suburban development. The depth and breadth of Lyle Nyberg's research is astounding."
-- David T. Dixon, author of Radical Warrior: August Willich's Journey from German Revolutionary to Union General; past Trustee, Scituate Historical Society
