Overview

The Upper Kennebec Valley is one of the most important gateways to Maine’s Great North Woods and has, for over 200 years, attracted those who love the wilderness, lakes, mountains, and streams. The Upper Kennebec Valley Volume II begins, once again, at The Forks, where the East Branch of the Kennebec and the Dead River unite to form the Kennebec. The area has long been dominated by logging and tourism trades. Starting with the days of horses and oxen, when loggers and "sports" came to the woods by foot and wagon to the coming of the railroad and the automobile, we see the growth of these small towns and the hardworking loggers, daring river drivers, sport hunters and fishermen, and those who guided and hosted them. Early scenes of the daily lives of "valley folk" enjoying local parades, picnics, reunions, and sporting events come alive within these pages.
