    Best Maine book ever

    There is also a second volume (and more to come, I hope!). The amount of information offered is astounding. Touches on so many social and economic themes, well selected, intriguing, and always academically presented in the finest format. Except for the Baxter MHS series, and Baxter's monographs, no other author comes near to the completeness and outstanding presentation of Bunting. If one has any interest in a Maine topic, (s)he will find these books of the greatest value. It's a real keeper.

    A unique book about a unique state and people

    For anyone who loves Maine, and the people who live there, this book reviews much of the heritage that formed them into the state they are today; hardworking, industrious, and self sufficient. The photos don't speak clearly to the reader at first, but the text brings out the color and drama and details behind the black and white photos like no other book I have seen. Each photo is described, either for the details of the particular photo, or for the way of life, now gone, that it depicts. the harsh realities of winter, hard work, industrial accidents, immigration, and a thousand other facts of life in a previous time mold an image of who Maine folk are and how they got to be that way. Some passages with names and places I knew caused one of those 'Ah HA!' moments, when I finally understood why things are they way they are today..... This book covers a lot of territory, from the woods of Patten to the docks of Portland, and the trip is one you cannot take just by driving the Maine Turnpike and saying you are in Maine. Some details are left out, phrases used and terms for some photos are not explained but are only slightly detrimental to the enjoyment of each and every photo. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves Maine and it's history.
