Reviews:

“As a maritime history this work adheres to the standard chronological analysis that would be expected from such an undertaking.” -Journal of the Australian Association for Maritime History, Vol. 24, No.1, 2002

“[This book] is a fascinating introduction…Paine’s economy of phrase and clarity of purpose make this book a delight…” -Walter Cronkite

“Lincoln Paine has laid down the framework for an understanding of the maritime history of Maine in a most enjoyable fashion. He successfully relates the population and the landscape of today to their historic foundations. He does so with liberal doses of interesting and evocative first-person anecdotes. This is a book that can be read in an evening and yet should certainly find a place in one’s reference library. It not so much supplants the efforts of prior historians as it helps put their work into context. One will, we feel, refer to this work again and again.” -RAdm. Richard I. Rybacki, USCG (Ret.), OpSail Maine 2000, and Thomas R. Wilcox, Jr., Maine Maritime Museum
