Maine Memories by Elizabeth Coatsworth lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
The Stephen Greene Press (Vermont), 1968, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: MAINE MEMORIES is made up of fifty-four vignettes of life in the seacoast-and-farming community around Damariscotta where Elizabeth Coatsworth has lived for the past three decades.
Deftly, and with an affection as crisp or gentle or wry as the real people and incidents she portrays, Miss Coatsworth tells of snowbound days in a remote farmhouse, of wildlife in woods and lake, of local Indians and legends, of neighbours who plough with oxen, of gallant and tough-minded seafarers.
In this collection she combines the best parts of two earlier books, with a good many changes and new chapters added, and all distilling the essence of a nearly vanished way of life.
