Swan's Island Chronicles: Borrowed, Exaggerated and Half-Forgotten Tales of Island Life (American Chronicles (History Press)) (Paperback)
The small Downeast Maine community of Swan's Island has seen summer people come and go, but it has held on to its stories. Author Kate Webber illustrates island life with humor, affection and the voices of islanders--from the first settlement and 1950s hijinks to courtship and commerce. Explore the first and last one-room schools, island romance in sock-hop days and coastal celebrations. No one kicks up their heels on the third of July like Swan's Islanders. From spooky haunts to local legends, the island's history is all its own. Join Webber on this historic romp set against the backdrop of modern island living, and get acquainted with the island that comes alive after the last ferry has pulled away.
