Coastal Maine : A Maritime History
Fascinating and comprehensive chronicle of 400 years of maritime history along the Maine coast. Roger Duncan recounts rich maritime history, from the early seafarers' discovery of its valuable resources to Maine's role in the history of the US in peacetime and in war. He traces the demise of the coastal trade; the burgeoning popularity of pleasure boating after World War II; the hardships that beset the fishing and lumber industries; and the rise of tourism. This anecdotal panorama of people, land, boats, and water will absorb historians, nautical enthusiasts, and New Englanders alike.
