about

Including topics ranging from the Missouri Compromise and statehood to the Algonquin language and the origins of L. L. Bean, this comprehensive guide showcases the fascinating state of Maine. Inventions created in Maine, such as the doughnut hole and the earmuff, as well as state delicacies—blueberries and maple syrup—are discussed in detail. Profiles of Stephen King, Joan Benoit Samuelson, George Mitchell, and the Wyeth family are also included. Thorough and engaging, this handbook will inspire a greater appreciation of Maine and all this state has to offer.

Nancy Griffin is the editor of the Gulf of Maine Times, and as a freelance writer, she has written for the Boston Globe, the Free Press, and the Hartford Courant. She also taught workshops in writing, newsletter writing and editing, and desktop publishing for the University of Maine–Augusta. She lives in Thomaston, Maine.
