Captain Admont G. Clark, USCG(r) (ret.), “has lived on Cape Cod since World War II, in which he served in the Coast Guard, retiring as captain. He was a teacher for fifty years, first at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and later at Cape Cod Community College. Admont G. Clark is the author of:  Sea Stories of Cape Cod and the Islands; They Built Clipper Ships in Their Backyard; Lighthouses of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket: Their History And Lore; and, The real imagination: An introduction to poetry. He is also the co-author of A Puzzling Pair of Cape Cod Pirates: And Other Stories and The Boy Who Saved a Cape Cod Town: And Other Cape Cod Stories.

According to the book description of Sea Stories of Cape Cod and the Islands, “It has been nearly a lifetime since anyone published the sort of stories in this book. So it seems to be time that the rich traditions of these waters were reexamined. Collected here are some 50 sea stories - all true, all historic and richly illustrated. Among the armada of stories in this volume, readers discover the first English fort on this continent (1602), mutiny, piracy, bravery, romance, shipbuilding, disasters (tiny Truro lost fifty-one fishermen on the grand banks in a single storm!), rum-running, and even cannibalism. The world of the seamen was a dangerous world indeed. In 1830, the great marine insurer Lloyd’s of London reported 677 ships lost at sea; in 1881 the number was 973. This collection captures the superb qualities of the people of Cape Cod and the Islands--their tenacity, their ingenuity and their heroism.”

According to the book description of Lighhouses of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket: Their History And Lore, “This profusely illustrated book tells the story of Cape Cod’s lighthouses like no other. Admont Clark notes all the physical facts—when and where each lighthouse was built, the type and range of each light, etc. But it is his emphasis on stories of the people who lived and worked in the lighthouses that makes this book so enjoyable. Readers are infused with a sense of daily life at each lighthouse, while also reading the extraordinary events that make their histories.”
