Douglas Wheeler, UNH. "Portuguese Spinner: An American Story is a record of the Portuguese, mainly from the Azores, who settled in New Bedford, Fall River, Fox Point and other environs. Not a history or a sociological study nor memoir nor literature nor photographic essay, it's all of these - and more. It is, on many levels, the story of all immigrants. And yet, it has a flavor unique to the Portuguese, heavy with the scent of the islands.

Thomas, Joseph D. III. McCabe, Marsha . Naturally, no serious book concerning the American whaling industry can be done with-out interaction with the New Bedford Whaling Museum. We are grateful to Director Anne Brengle and Director of Programs Lee Heald for their support. We have transformed the book into a storyboard animated with authentic photographs that thoroughly portray the whaling industry and cul-ture, as well as places visited by Ishmael and Melville. We’ve included original whaler artwork such as logbook and journal paintings, scrimshaw, etchings and illustrations.

Joseph Martin McCabe (12 November 1867 – 10 January 1955) was an English writer and speaker on freethought, after having been a Roman Catholic priest earlier in his life. Although he is now largely forgotten, he was "one of the great mouthpieces of freethought in England". A staunch critic of the Catholic Church, McCabe joined groups such as the Rationalist Association and the National Secular Society.

Herman Melville,Tamia A. Burt,Joseph D. Thomas,Marsha McCabe . an allegorical critique of contemporary American civilization. It is a difficult as well as a brilliant book, and many critics have offered interpretations of its complicated ambiguous symbolism.

Here's a publication with almost as many authors as there are pages, a glossy coffee table book designed for this states Portuguese communities but certainly a major literary effort that will interest most readers regardless of ethnic background.

Portuguese Spinner: An American Story is truly a community endeavor involving editors, writers, photographers, interviewers and researchers, it tells a story that in a paradoxical sense is both old and new.

It is new because it focuses on persons of a Portuguese descent who left their homes in Portugal, the Azores, the Madeiras or other islands to settle on Cape Cod or in nearby cities. It is old because while the characters have changed, the story has been told before, the always remarkable tale of impoverished immigrants leaving their homes in foreign lands, seeking and usually achieving a better life in America.

With a detailed bibliography, index and numerous rare photographs complementing the lyrical and often humorous oral histories, Portuguese Spinner is truly a one-volume library, to be read and treasured.

Another really great book about Portuguese culture and it's people. I have yet to digest the amount of information in this book and I am so glad that I was able to get my hands on a copy and that someone took the time to put it all together. The majority of my relatives are from the Azores and settled in New Bedford, Massachusetts, as I continue my genealogy research, I am sure to look at this book again and again.
I also ordered this book as part of my research into the family tree of a friend given that I had traced his heritage to the New England area. Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that part of my friend's family are featured on the cover and found an additional photo of his grandmother and his aunt within the book!!! He was stunned when I showed them to him and explained what I had learned about the new-found relatives he never knew he had until now. Finding gold like this makes researching FUN!
Great book! I’m enjoying all the history on the Portuguese culture
As an immigrant from St. Michael, Azores, who was raised in the south end of New Bedford, Massachusetts, one might think I had little to gain from a book describing my "roots," but quite the opposite was true. Every morning I read a few pages with my coffee and almost every morning I found myself teary-eyed and nostalgic. My emotional reaction to the book came from feelings of compassion, pride and a deep understanding that was stirred by the stories, cases, and historical background so beautifully captured by the writers and editors. The photography is wonderful as well. I've now purchased three copies of this book and expect to still buy more. I want to share it with family and friends and don't want to give up my copy so I'll keep buying them as gifts. My sister, who still lives in Portugal, said that if this book were translated into Portuguese, it would be well-received in Europe and Brazil. I know my parents, who are non-English speakers, would enjoy it thoroughly if it were translated. Meanwhile, I shall treasure it both as a remarkable example of documentation of the immigrant experience and as a personal reminder of my heritage. Non-Portuguese friends of mine have also found it fascinating and a valuable contribution to an often ignored aspect of American history. Many kudos (and much gratitude) to the editors and publishers for a major accomplishment.
The Portugues Spinner, was the best book that I've ever read and it took me, only a few days to read it and I've never read this fast before { I just couldn't put the book down ]! My ancestors came from Sao Miquel and Sao Jorge, Acores and lived in New Bedford, Mass. I was born in New Bedford and this book brought back so many memories of living there and I still remember lots of those places. I went to Our Lady Of Mount Carmel Church and School! The pictures were Great and it was wonderful reading about your own town like that. I also worked at the factory that was mentioned in the book when I was only 16 yrs.old. I will pass this book along to my children so, they can enjoy it too! Thank you so much! Sincerely, Mrs. Olivia Rosa Silva Strittmatter Tucson, Arizona
