What they're saying ...

 

"With his outgoing personality and ability to speak animatedly about the shipwrecks and personal stories of crew members and surfmen, Mr. Wilding is a natural for giving presentations and talks on local history."
— Joanne Briana-Garner, The Enterprise Newspapers of Falmouth, Mass.

"Don Wilding … calls himself a storyteller, but he is also somewhat of a scholar. He’s a very dynamic man who pulls you into the stories of Cape Cod."
— Rhoda Flaxman, Retired Professor of Literature, Brown University, and Founder, Open University of Wellfleet, 2017

(Don Wilding’s) history pieces … are among The Cape Codder (newspaper’s) high points.

New England Newspaper & Press Association, 2019

 

You’re continuing to tell these stories, and as we’re losing our heroes of the old Cape, you’re maintaining that. Everyone should keep an eye on where you are and what you’re speaking about in your different engagements.

Robby McQueeney ("The Dune Tramp"), WOMR-FM, Provincetown

 

(Don’s) scholarship (is) certainly evident. (He is) most knowledgeable about Cape history.
