Campobello Island (Historic Canada) (Paperback)
During its long, legendary history, Campobello Island has been known by many names: the Native American word for it was Abahquict, French explorers called it Port aux Coquilles, and the English named it Outer Island. Campobello rises on the outer edge of Passamaquoddy Bay just across the water from Eastport, Maine, and only a stone's throw away from the Narrows at Lubec, Maine. Campobello Island features rare historical photographs gleaned from the collection of the Campobello Public Library and Museum, other archives, and private collections of many local families. The book chronicles the century-long rule of the Owen family, depicts the fishing villages of Welshpool and Wilson's Beach, salutes the island's military heroes, and captures the faces of countless residents, including the Roosevelts, who were members of the summer colony for more than half a century. The story of "Sunrise at Campobello" rounds out this extraordinary history.
