KIRKUS REVIEW

A reporter on the Bangor Daily News has collected his many interviews with Maine people and presents their stories of past events and life histories. He covers shopkeepers and traders, sailors, bachelors, hunters, trappers, woodsmen, musicians, doctors, treasure hunters, shipbuilders, Indians, goldseekers; he tells of old romances, of women that traveled with seafaring husbands around the world, storms, strange expeditions and he gives a human interest picture of an individual type of people. Good enough reading of its kind -- though it seems not quite as salty as the reputation of the people of whom he writes.
