    Bill Moss

Lavishly illustrated with historic photographs, the book chronicles Moss' creative life from his early years until his death in 1994.

    Confluence: Merrymeeting Bay

    , , , ,
    There are said to be only four places in the world where two major rivers—with entirely separate watersheds—converge at their mouths to form a common delta. One of them is Merrymeeting Bay in Maine. It is unfamiliar to most people, even within its immediate vicinity. Frank Burroughs has lived and knocked around on Merrymeeting Bay for three decades, gaining a familiarity with its natural and human history—with its birds, fish, and mammals, and with the local people who know it best. His wonderfully fluid essays explore the ecology, environment, and activities in this unusual bay, as Heather Perry's beautiful photographs show us the details.

    Continental Liar

    , ,
    CONTINENTAL LIAR, by Neil Rolde, explores how, In 1884, Republican James G. Blaine came within 1,047 votes of becoming the President of the United States. This was the margin by which he lost New York State—and thus the election—to Grover Cleveland in what has been called "the dirtiest campaign in American history." Yet his career—arguably the most sensational of any American politician of the so-called Gilded Age—did not end there.

('I just saw an eagle go by. It was carrying a baby.')

Some previously unpublished photographs from the E. B. White Estate show the family dogs, from the first collie, to various labs, Scotties, dachshunds, half-breeds, and mutts, all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.

    Ed Muskie

    , ,
    ED MUSKIE: MADE IN MAINE, by Jim Witherell, covers the life and career of Edmund "Ed" Muskie, from his childhood in Rumford, Maine, to his years as the governor of Maine. Born in a paper mill town in Maine's western foothills, Muskie was one of six children of a Polish immigrant and a Polish-American mother whose English was worse than her husband's. His arc through his formative years was singular and unpredictable, an American story that looks plausible only in hindsight.

    Eminent Mainers

    , , ,
    In EMINENT MAINERS, by Arthor Douglas Stover, you'll meet Hiram Abrams, born in Portland in 1878 the son of a Russian immigrant real estate broker, who attended public schools, left school at age sixteen, sold newspapers, bought a cow and started a dairy—and eventually became the founder and president of United Artists. Or Aurelia Gay Mace, born in 1835 in Strong, a Shaker from an early age, credited with the invention of the wire coat hanger. Aurelia achieved national fame in 1890 when she mistook Charles Lewis Tiffany for a tramp, gave him lemonade, brushed his clothes, insisted that he sit down for the noon meal, and sent him off with a box lunch. Tiffany responded by sending her a set of engraved silver. Meet Milton Bradley was born in Vienna (Maine) in 1836, educated at Harvard, worked as a mechanical engineer andpatent solicitor, became interested in lithography, developed a board game, "The Checkered Game of Life," and founded the Milton Bradley Company. Or Louise Bogan, who was born in Livermore Falls in 1897, moved to Greenwich Village as a young woman, took up the bohemian life and occasionally drove the get-away car for a fur thief, and ended up as the poetry critic for The New Yorker magazine. Maine boring? Never!

    George Wardlaw: Crossing Borders

    The artworks in this volume present six decades of art making by American artist George Wardlaw (b.1927), the first comprehensive account of this remarkable body of work. Over 180 full-color plates and illustrations offer an extensive look at Wardlaw s work played out on canvases, forged in metal, constructed in objects, sculpture, and installations. Critical essays by J. Richard Gruber, Ori Z. Soltes, and Suzette McAvoy characterize Wardlaw s work, placing it in context with the significant art movements of his time, beginning in 1948, with non-objective painting and tracing his journey across geographical, physical, intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual boundaries.
