Exciting and fascinating, Maine: An Annotated Bibliography is a look at the Maine Experience from its many historical, political, social, and literary perspectives. Organized under such unifying themes as "The Wild, Wild East," "Ethnicity Matters," "Women in Maine," and "Maine in the Civil War," the work gives readers a most useful and often humorous overview of over 400 books written about Maine. The author introduces the reader to many often overlooked works from the nineteeth century and early twentieth century, such as those by Sally Field, Elijah Kellogg, and Chenoa Hall, as well as many studies of familiar political figures such as Bill Cohen, Ed Muskie, Joshua Chamberlain, Angus King, Margaret Chase Smith, and George Mitchell. A valuable resource for anyone interested in the Pine Tree State.

Christian P. Potholm is DeAlva Stanwood Alexander professor of government at Bowdoin College.Review:
More enjoyable and educational than any anthology, Dr. Potholm's entertaining bibliography brings Maine's history and culture together into one delightful reading list. Maine: An Annotated Bibliography is a comprehensive 'who's who' of Maine literature with brief commentary on each entry. I particularly enjoyed checking off the titles of books I've already read or those I will definitely be reading in the future. Woman writers are impressively evident in the annotated lexicon of Maine stories, histories, and biographies. This delightful resource book is a joy to read for those who love Maine and a documentary for those who may know little about our beautiful state. Dr. Potholm succeeds in leading us to realize how the state's rugged beauty has inspired many talented writers over several centuries.(Juliana L'Heureux, www.mainewriter.com)
