one, could anyone suggest any works set in a fishing village or small town circa the 19th century, early 20th or the equivalent? examples: travelogues, memoirs, autobiographies, realistic novels. recent novels set in Cape Cod (a lot of those have gotten published recently, as searching the local library systems has found out) won't help all that much. too modern!
two, any advice for mapping out this place? please? I made some attempts and each time I did it, the place looked wrong. not sure why. if anyone could point me to well-drawn village maps and tutorials you would have gratitude for always. thank you much!
