Overview

With a coastline that rivals California’s, Maine attracts millions of visitors each year who come to swim, fish, hike, or just enjoy the views. Many of the images present a near panoramic scope, placing the viewer in the middle of a wilderness splendor. The photographs capture the region’s famous sandy beaches, tree-covered mountains, tidepools brimming with life, and secluded harbors, as well as quaint villages, historic lighthouses, cranberry bogs, and lobster boats. Chapters cover Ogunquit, Kennebunkport, and Portland to Penobscot Bay, Mount Desert Island, and Cobscook Bay. A central focus is Acadia National Park, one of the top ten most visited national parks in America. Nearby, the town of Bar Harbor hosts more than eighty cruise ships each year. The book also celebrates offshore Maine, with images of whales, puffins, and other elusive sea creatures. The Coast of Maine makes an affordable and charming gift for anyone planning, or dreaming of, a visit to this glorious region.

    Almost as good as being there!

    I have seen a lot of coffee table books but this one is one you can put in your pocketbook and travel around with. It is small and concise with beautiful photographs of some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. I gave this book to my husband as a birthday gift to remember the beautiful times we spent in Maine both as children and adults. My husband took a picture of us with our son at the Portland Light and it is now poster size hanging in our living room. Thank you for letting us relive some fond memories from the comfort of our home.
