    Backyard Maine

    , , , ,
    In BACKYARD MAINE, Edgar Allen Beem examines, muses about, scoffs at, reveals, and celebrates everyday life in Maine, from high school sports to high-priced homes, aging dogs to aging cars, politics to religion, underwear to naps, berry-picking to clam festivals, and much, much more. Opinionated, insightful, humorous, and sometimes controversial, Ed Beem enjoys his role as a local observer, and these essays will resonate with anyone tuned in to day-to-day life in backyard Maine.

    E.B. White on Dogs

    , , ,
    In E. B. WHITE ON DOGS, his granddaughter and manager of his literary estate, Martha White, has compiled the best and funniest of his essays, poems, letters, and sketches depicting over a dozen of White's various canine companions. Featured here are favorite essays such as 'Two Letters, Both Open,' where White takes on the Internal Revenue Service, and also 'Bedfellows,' with its 'fraudulent reports'; from White's ignoble old dachshund, Fred. ('I just saw an eagle go by. It was carrying a baby.') From The New Yorker's 'The Talk of the Town' are some little-known Notes and Comment pieces covering dog shows, sled dog races, and the trials and tribulations of city canines. Some previously unpublished photographs from the E. B. White Estate show the family dogs, from the first collie, to various labs, Scotties, dachshunds, half-breeds, and mutts, all well-loved.

    O. Murray Carr

    The Honorable Jonathan Jackson, an ex-state legislator and former gubernatorial assistant, is trying to puzzle out and understand one of those mind-boggling tragedies that occur from time to time in the course of U.S. public life; an assassination. In this case, the victim was the man he worked for, Governor Richard N. Ellery. The anguish of this tragedy is compounded by the identity of the killer Jonathan Jackson's boyhood friend, a would-be Hollywood actor hung up on the dream of American success.

    On Wilderness

    , ,
    In ON WILDERNESS nearly forty writers, artists, and photographers in this extraordinary collection raise their voices for wilderness. They bear witness to the central role it plays in Maine, its importance to our understanding of nature, to our sense of who we are in the world, to our very souls, if you will. And some of them devote practical thinking to how we might recover and nurture wilderness in the future.

    One Man’s Meat

    ,
    In print for fifty-five years, One Man's Meat continues to delight readers with E.B. Whites witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm. Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny and self-doubting for a literary journal, One Mans Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman’s lessons. A timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style. First published in 1944, this classic collection of enduring commentaries is reissued here with a new introduction by the author.

    Red Right Returning

    RED RIGHT RETURNING, by Charles McLane, set on a Penobscot Bay island is a sprawling novel that follows the lives of a dozen islanders and their families through tragedy, change, and triumph in a world that isn’t as isolated as it once may have seemed. Although the story begins just after World War II, it is remarkably current as it explores timeless island themes: the subtle tensions (and attractions) between islanders and summer people, the special dynamics of island life, the inevitable competition for lobsters, and how an island community adjusts to change.
