Despite brief out-of-state interludes for college, grad school, and a stint as a ski bum, Hilary Nangle couldn't resist the lure of her home state. She grew up on the coast, spending much of each winter skiing in the western mountains. When she worked for a whitewater rafting company as a Registered Maine Whitewater Guide on the Kennebec River, she began exploring the central and northern regions of the state, and a sense of wanderlust was ignited. When she tired of her parents asking when she was going to get a real job, she drew on her writing strength, working as editor for the pro ski tour publications, managing editor for a food trade publication, features editor for a daily newspaper, and now as a freelance writer/editor.

Hilary never tires of exploring Maine, always seeking out the offbeat and quirky, and rarely resisting the invitation of a backroad. To her husband’s dismay, she inherited her grandmother’s shopping gene and can’t pass a used-book store, artisans’ gallery, or antiques shop without browsing. She’s equally curious about food, and has never met a lobster she didn’t like. She still divides her year between the coast and the mountains, residing with her husband, photographer Tom Nangle, and two oversized dogs, all of whom share her passions for long walks and Maine-made ice cream.

This is one of those rare travel books that fulfills the needs of both the seasoned Maineac like myself and those who have never been to Maine. The book gives the reader just enough information about all kinds of "sub categories" on the subject of Maine, ie...you can pan for gold in one of Maine's state parks...who knew???? The book does not go into great depth about each topic but gives just enough detail to assist a traveler in making decisions about which side trips to plan when traveling to the "Vacation State".
