'An Island Cabin' Boat Tour, with Stephen Jones
Tour the Islands off Noank, where author Arthur Henry penned his 1902 book, 'An Island Cabin', in which five disparate friends from the Big City occupy a simple summer cabin -- and things take off from there.
This special boat tour, led by Stephen Jones, is presented in partnership with the Noank Historical Society.
Limited to 20 passengers, we tour for one hour aboard the 'Popeye', which leaves out of Noank, CT. $35.
Copies of 'An Island Cabin' are available for $10 at the Custom House Maritime Museum, 150 Bank Street, New London, or can be mailed for an additional $6 postage; call 860-447-8700.
Remember: Reservations, 24 hours in advance, are necessary for all of our tours, as we need to notify our captains. (If you want to take a chance with a day-of tour, please call 860-447-8700.)

About the Author
Arthur Henry (1867-1934), now a footnote to Dreiser studies, was at the time the better known of the two writers. He was not only Dreiser's frequent companion, but the man whose friendly wager challenged Dreiser to write his break-through novel 'Sister Carrie'. Furthermore, Henry was the man who edited Dreiser's sprawling realism to make it publishable. A journalist, novelist, and playwright, Henry's varied career brought him together with many famous writers and social reformers.
