Including a short history of the region, the book explores Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and the surrounding villages and environs in detail, including interviews with locals and covering where to stay, best restaurants, shops, and things to do from puffin cruises to sails on the famed schooner Margaret Todd to hiking, biking, and paddling.

The Maine Lobster Book: Everyone loves lobster - especially Maine lobster. This fun, fact filled book brings the reader on the lobster's journey from ocean floor to plate, stopping along the way to get to know the people and places of Maine's iconic industry.


The Wild Blueberry Book :  Commercially harvested only in Maine and parts of Canada, wild blueberries are prized for their intense flavor and color. The Wild Blueberry Book follows the story of these luscious berries as they make their way from the barrens to your table, with some stops along the way for pie-eating contests, baking competitions, and even an annual musical celebrating the culture that has grown up around Maine’s official berry.

You’ll meet growers, rakers, beekeepers, processors, winemakers, blueberry queens, and some of the food scientists who are unlocking the secrets behind blueberries’ amazing health benefi ts. Recipes, too!


Red’s Eats:  The first and only book about the tiny red phenomenon Red's Eats, where loyal patrons will wait for an hour or more for a rich, succulent lobster roll. Debbie Cronk, whose family has owned Red's Eats for more than 30 years, shared stories and memorabilia for the book. Red's has legions of fans across the U.S. because 90% of Maine tourists pass by this iconic lobster shack beside Route one in Wiscasset. As the Frommer's review points out, this Maine roadside eatery has received more than its fair share of national ink and TV attention. Added to that are the huge number of internet postings that continue spreading the word about Red's, many of them echoing the opinions of CNN/Money's review: Red's is not fancy, just perfect.
