RANGING THE MAINE COAST

This is not for the elderly lady who spends her summers at Bar Harbor, but for those who go to sea and like it, and know that on shore a ""nun"" is a lady in holy orders, but at sea she is a buoy. This is a yachtsman's book, by a distinguished yachtsman-author, and illustrated by a Grade A marine artist. A sea-going Trending Into Maine, filled with references to early explorers, Champlain, John Smith, Gosnold and the rest. Not a cruising guide, but a book to incite cruising, the subject matter handled with a light touch and a sense of humor. As all good Chesapeake Bay yachtsmen cruise with Swepson Earle's Chesapeake Bay Country in the cabin; so this book belongs on the ""down easter's shelf, along with the admirable Cruising Guide to the New England Coast and Moffat's indispensable Galley Guide. Good prospects -- subscribers to yachting magazines."" Note to booksellers:- E. S. McCawley, our sea expert, gives a lot of gratuitous information in the foregoing. Now you have no excuse for not making a plus sale or so to mariners.
