One Manâs Maine

Publisher: Green Writers Press

Maine is a talisman of the American imagination, offering beauty and wildlife to tourists and natives. Over the last few years, Jim has published many essays about the wonders and challenges of Maineâs environment, and One Manâs Maine collects and edits them into sixteen pairs. The first essays of each pair employ the natural icons of Maineâ"lobster, moose, blueberries, lupineâ"to reach into matters of human significance. These are familiar essays that combine science and belief, observation and emotion. The second essays are broader and more discursive and take on a fuller range of experiences in this beloved state.
