Long Island sits eight miles off the Maine coast, one of the state's most remote island outposts and one of only fifteen Maine islands still supporting a year-round community. Only a century ago, there were some three hundred such communities. Frenchboro, the island's lone village, surrounds Lunt Harbor. In the 1820s the Lunt family and a small band of pioneers carved the island community from the spruce and granite shores. Today, Frenchboro has a population of nearly seventy people, a thirteen-pupil school, a post office, and one full-time business. There is neither a general store, nor tourist hotel, nor daily ferry service. Instead, there is a village, a soul, and a way of life. This is its story. 480 Pgs Paperback
