    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.

    Rediscovering S.P. Rolt Triscott

    , , ,
    REDISCOVERING S. P. ROLT TRISCOTT, by Richard Malone and Earle Shettleworth, delves into the life of watercolorist Samuel Peter Rolt Triscott (1846–25) who, in 1902, moved permanently to Monhegan, becoming the first artist to live there year-round. His biography is accompanied by 50 paintings and more than 60 black and white photographs of Monhegan, printed from his glass plates. A classic nineteenth-century watercolorist in the English tradition, Triscott continued to paint, but also did photography, painted in oils, and produced hand-tinted photographs.

    Remarkable Americans

    , ,
    REMARKABLE AMERICANS, by Kerck Kelsey, traces the lives of ten remarkable children who grew up on a simple farm in remote Livermore, Maine. Four were elected and reelected to the U.S. Congress from four different states. Two of the four would later be separately considered for Republican nomination for president and vice president of the country. Two were ambassadors, two were state governors, and two others worked to establish the great mills that would become General Mills. Growing up in rural poverty, their advantages were few, but together they left a record of achievement that will probably never be equaled again by a single generation of any American family.

    In REMEMBER ME, by Donald Soctomah and Jean Flahive, readers learn how Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the man who would become the thirty-second president of the United States, joyfully spent his boyhood summers on Campobello Island. There he met Tomah Joseph, a Passamaquoddy elder and former chief who made his living as a guide, birchbark canoe builder, and basket-maker. Authors Soctomah and Flahive imagine the relationship that developed between these two as Tomah Joseph taught young Franklin how to canoe and shared some of the stories and culture of his people. A beautifully decorated birchbark canoe that he made for Franklin remains at Campobello Island, a tangible reminder of this special friendship.

    In SAVING BIRDS, by Pete Salmansohn and Stephen W. Kress, we learn there are many kinds of heroes in our world. In six multicolor, multicultural stories we’ll learn about grownups and young people fighting against the odds to save wild birds--and about the birds themselves, some on the brink of extinction. Puppet shows are part of a Protection Through Pride program educating the indigenous people of the cloud forests of Chiapas, Mexico, so that they’ll join efforts to stop the habitat destruction and poaching threatening the colorful quetzals that share their forests. On Devil’s Slide Rock off the coast off California, we’ll watch young scientists brave the crashing surf and steep cliffs to restore a colony murres wiped out in an oil spill. Despite the tensions of war in Israel, work continues to keep a handsome falcon from disappearing, and in the vast and rural wetlands of southcentral China, we’ll see how the fates of black-necked cranes and impoverished villagers are tied together. Herculean efforts in New Zealand have helped save the black robin, once the world’s rarest songbird, and we’ll learn how an international team from the American zoos and organizations in Sarawak has come up with a surprising plan to save jungle hornbills from being hunted for their feathers.

    In SAY SOMETHING, by Peggy Moss, there are some children who push and tease and bully at the local school. Sometimes they hurt other kids by just ignoring them.

Will she take some steps on her own to help another kid? Bright, fluid, realistic watercolors illustrate the story, set in a school with lots of diversity. Resources at the end of the book will help parents and children talk about teasing and bullying and find ways to stop it at school.

    In SEA SOUP: ZOOPLANKTON, by Mary M. Cerullo, we learn that a teaspoon of sea water can hold a soupy serving of a million zooplankton! These tiny animals often look like weird life forms from outer space or larger animals such as jellyfish. In this newest volume, Mary Cerullos text answers intriguing questions about these tiny animals that have shaped our world, while Bill Curtsingers extraordinary photomicroscopy serves up tantalizing images of this sea soup. Many of the photos for these books were taken at Maine's Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science and the Darling Marine Center.

    SEA STRUCK, by W. H. Bunting, explores how some people seem to be born with salt water running in their veins and as soon as they are able, "go to sea." For certain young men at the turn of the last century, this was as much a rite of passage as, for others, a "season" abroad. The experience was a transitory adventure for some; for others it was a life-shaping experience. SEA STRUCK is about the final decades of American square-rigged sail, as recorded in firsthand accounts of voyages made by three genteel young men from Massachusetts.

    Sheila Says We’re Weird (but we’re just green)

    , , , , , , ,
    Sheila is either hanging over the back fence or hanging out with her neighbors. They're interesting, but they're weird. Why do they hang their laundry outside instead of using the dryer? Why are they riding their bikes to the library instead of just using the car? Why do they mow their lawn with a push mower when a gas mower is much faster? But Sheila discovers that their homemade soup sure tastes good, that she likes picking cherry tomatoes and strawberries in their garden, and it's pretty cozy to sit around the woodstove in the winter. Are Sheila's neighbors really weird, or do they have some good ideas going on?

    Snow Squall

    , , ,
    In the middle of the nineteenth century, American clipper ships astounded the maritime world with their amazingly swift passages to and from faraway seaports, bringing back exotic and valuable cargoes of tea, spices, and silk. Of all those clippers, only one remains: the Maine-built Snow Squall, whose bow section was rescued from the remote Falkland Islands by the Snow Squall Project in the 1980s. This book begins (and ends) with an unusual volunteer archaeological expedition in the aftermath of the Falkland War but quickly becomes a maritime detective story, as snow squall's story is pieced together further with information gleaned from shipping lists, newspaper accounts, disaster books, and diaries.

    The A1 Diner

    , , ,
    The A1 DINER, by Sarah Rolph, starts in 1946 when Worcester Diner #790 arrived by truck and was installed at 3 Bridge Street in Gardiner, Maine. Under the name of Heald's Diner, it served employees of Gardiner's mills and factories with an emphasis on ample portions served quickly. The diner is still at 3 Bridge Street, still a marvel of efficiency and art modern design, still a local gathering place, still serving the same warm, flaky biscuits. But under the ownership of Mike Giberson and Neil Anderson since 1988, the little A1 Diner (as it is now known) draws customers (and restaurant reviews) from far and wide with its wonderfully eclectic menu (you can order Bouillabaisse or meatloaf), its emphasis on fresh, local food, and its upscale deli and specialty food store next door, A1 To Go. This is a small business success story, filled with characters from either side of the counter, packed with recipes and kitchen notes, enjoyable down to the last bite.

    THE CATBOAT ERA, by John M. Leavens, takes us to Newport, R.I. When we think of Newport at the end of the nineteenth century, we think of life lived large--big houses, big yachts, big money. But like the diversity of people to be found in any waterfront town, there was a diversity of watercraft in Newport waters. In among the yachts are found the workboats and other small craft. John Leavens took a look back at the humble catboat, and found a wealth of information about its origin, its builders, and its owners.

    The Cranberry

    ,
    THE CRANBERRY, by Stephen Cole and Lindy Gifford, explores how a wild fruit became a cultivated commodity; the American cranberry contains equal amounts of holiday symbolism and antioxidants. Its evolution over the past century is a surprising story of risk, enterprise, conflict, and the tension between tradition and innovation. The cranberry is characterized by the distinctive regions--from Cape Cod to the Pacific Northwest--where it is grown. But the diminutive fruit has also changed the life and landscape of these places. THE CRANBERRY harvests stories, images, and observations to tell the unusual tale of an American subculture dominated by this tart little red fruit.
