Overview

The McLanes have delved into a wealth of primary sources, using old tax assessments, court records, and early maps to spin their tales of the early settlers of Maine's islands and their descendants. Here is history as it too seldom is in textbooks: colorful, human, downright irresistible. Each volume is replete with rare vintage photos and dozens of maps and will delight all who love islands, or simply a good read.

Charles McLane is a professor emeritus of government at Dartmouth College and has written several books on Sino/Soviet relations. His late wife Carol collaborated closely with him on the Islands series, and in raising six children. The McLanes have been longtime summer residents of Brooklin, Maine.
