Originally published in 1937 as part of the Rivers of America series, this book has become a classic of Maine literature. And only Robert P. Tristram Coffin could have woven this story of the majestic Kennebec and the people who lived beside it, from the Popham Plantation in the early 1600s to the 1930s. His intimate knowledge of the Maine landscape, his love for ships and the men who sailed them, and his warm feeling for the people who farmed the Kennebec's banks enrich every page. Paperback. 224 pgs.
