A fascinating collection of historical stories

A nicely done book that should be read by anyone who wants to understand some unique aspects of Maine history. The book is not, and does not seek to be, a comprehensive history of the state. Instead it focuses on about twenty unique, but little known, events that briefly put Maine on the map or are just good stories. There is the story of how Maine was part of the nations early navy history in capturing a British ship during the revolution, the Aroostook War, the teenage who kept a lighthouse operating by herself, Andre the Seal or Samatha Smith, the teenager who was invited to visit Russia. The book is a delightful and easy read and should be read by every Mainer.

Maine leads the way.

This is a fascinating book that tells the stories about how our great State of Maine has played a key role in the history of the United States. Did you know that Maine was the sight of the United States first naval battle? This book does a great job giving a glimpse into the unique life of Mainers and the pride we have in the accomplishments of our State. No matter who you are you are sure to be entertained by the stories. The writing is accessable for all ages and the stories are entertaining. The chapters are short-I kept the book on my nightstand and read a chapter before bed. Reading it has made me interested in reading other books in the series about the States in our country.
