Parts were interesting, but did not understand the need to put down the tourists and cruise passengers so much. Tourism is the only way to support the economy. I did enjoy the history and descriptions of the quirky people.
A great sampler of local history. The guide sections are good, although sometimes slightly outdated.
Joy Williams does what very little can: write well.

One of the best guidebooks I have ever encountered.

Joyless and hectoring, yet thorough.
It was okay. Very opinionated author.
