Henry David Thoreau's Cape Cod (Penguin, 1987), an entertaining account of Thoreau's journeys on the Cape in the late 19th century. The writer/naturalist walked along the beach from Eastham to Provincetown, and you can follow in his footsteps. Henry Beston's classic The Outermost House (Henry Holt Co., 1992) describes a year of living on the beach in Eastham in a simple one-room dune shack. The shack washed out to sea about 20 years ago, but "The Great Beach" remains.
