Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: How do you become a legend on Nantucket? If you're Millie Jewett, you patrol beaches, battle a shark, lead evacuations, and pluck vacationers from the sea that wants to swallow them.

"It's refreshing to find a true story of a woman with brawn as well as brains, and who tests her considerable physical prowess against the elements rather that in the sports arena...." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A perfectly matched pair...Though this biography will find an eager regional audience, the appeal of Millie's tale, like her generous spirit and the ocean she adored, is far more expansive." --Publishers Weekly
