William E. Peace is an avid nature enthusiast and bicyclist and has lived on Cape Cod for over forty years. He knows the Cape as only a local resident could. He has led walks at Sandy Neck Barrier Beach and worked as a research associate at the Cape Cod National Seashore. The author of several books and webpages, Bill has three grown children. Besides his family, Bill is interested in photography, camping and the outdoors, computers and education, and gardening. He holds both Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Tufts University and has taught science on Cape Cod since 1973 at both the secondary and undergraduate levels.
Bill's books include The Cape Cod Bike Book which was first published in 1984 and is still the go-to guide on Cape bicycling, authored by a local Cape Cod resident, and published and revised annually. He also has published a new series of Cape Cod Visitor's Guides: Free and Inexpensive Things to Do on the Cape, with books about the Upper Cape, Mid Cape, Lower Cape, and Outer Cape. Each book gives a real insider's view to the Cape, information about points of interest, notes on history, ecology, where to stop, what to see, and some things that you might otherwise miss along the way. Bill loves Cape Cod, and he wants you to love it too, and he shares that passion in all the work that he does.
