Offshore fisherman and skillful shipbuilders transformed the quiet shores of the Pemaquid Peninsula beginning in 1815. The maritime economy drove local commerce until enterprising locals turned to ice harvesting, granite quarrying, brick making, lobster caning, and pogy oil processing before summer tourism grew and thrived. Explore the beauty and history of Maine's most famous peninsula. Black & white photos throughout. Paperback. 236 pgs.
