The Edge of Maine covers many aspects of Maine's famous coast, beginning with fog-an enduring reality- and a harrowing tale about being lost offshore in it without navigational aids. Wolff goes on to describe the coast's geological history and its discovery by Europeans, who settled there early to explore, fish, trap, and lumber. He then turns a keen eye toward Mainers, their mores and peculiarities, and to the summer rusticators who for generations have invaded their stunning waterfronts. A chapter on boat building celebrates the extraordinary back-from- the brink rescue of Maine's foremost craft, and Lobsters tells a rich story of the custom, taste, commerce, environmental conflict, and scientific mystery surrounding this most critical crustacean. Deeply informative and stylish written, The Edge o Maine is travel literature at its best, a true feast for Maine's legions of summer visitors and for anyone with an interest in this striking and distinctive part of the country.
