YANKEE COAST by Robert P. Tristram Coffin


Email this review


Essays, which contain a good deal of local lyricism and eloquently, sentimentally describe a native son's home country --the Maine coast. The islands -- and the more isolated, inbred island living; lobstering and tuna -- the kingpin sport fish; the mountain jims who live simple and hard; coastal architecture; lighthouses, boats and boat building; the shore line -- points of interest-literary figures; hunting deer and eating venison; seafood; earthquakes; tall tales and ghost stories; all these are part of a fairly rhapsodic regional portrait which is primarily for his market.
