This is the definitive history and contemporary explorer's guide to the Quabbin Reservoir. Located in Central Massachusetts, the reservoir is an amazing wilderness with an equally amazing history. The Quabbin has 118 miles of undeveloped shoreline, with surrounding reservation spanning some 81,000 acres of protected open space. The great city of Boston gets all its water from the Quabbin/Ware River/Wachusett watersheds, as do 45 other communities in Massachusetts. This book explores topics such as building the Quabbin and how it works; hiking, wildlife viewing, biking, and fishing; visiting the region's best waterfalls; Quabbin rules and regulations; as well as information on accommodations, restaurants, camping, orchards, swimming, golf, general stores, crafts, antiques, history, and more.
