"This book has grown from my own desire to know and preserve the history of the Maine island where I grew up. Being a fairly orderly person, I wanted to start from the beginning, to get a feeling for island life from the days when its only visitors were the Native Americans, whom we call Indians, up to the present." A quote from the preface by the author, Hugh L. Dwelley. A thorough history of Little Cranberry Island with chapters covering exploration & settlement, farming & fishing, social life, summer colony & winter living and much more. Black and white photographs throughout. Hardcover. 202 pgs.
