Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Nelsons STEM Writers take on history, with a series of stories evoked by the street furniture of the central city and its nearby Port. Follow from story to story, and tour the town on a narrative pathway and since this is a town with plenty of cafs, food carts, bars, and sunny green squares and parks, try the coffee, or a local boutique beer or cider, while you read. Let narrative fiction add a new and imaginative layer to your sense of a local communitys historical heritage
