9780967166247: In Maine

John Cole's classic IN MAINE is a sometimes moving, sometimes lyrical, but always personal book that reveals a man examining the progress of life and a man reveling in a natural world that not only unfolds around him, but a world in which he is an active participant. IN MAINE features selected essays that first appeared in "John's Column" in the MAINE TIMES--the influential newspaper he co-founded in 1968 and guided during its glory days in the 1970s. This Islandport Press edition also adds more recent essays that still speak to the wondrous rhythms of life in Cole's signature style and demonstrate an enduring passion for Maine and the outdoors that remains unabated.

From the Publisher:

For decades, the late John Cole wrote with passion about his life, the outdoors and the glorious rhythms of nature. In Maine, like all his essays and books, draws deep from his lifelong partnership and his fascination with the natural world--from commercial fishing in the waters off Long Island, New York, to chasing stripers in Casco Bay, Maine, to quietly observing the shifting winds that roll across the local meadow and the annual change of seasons, a ritual he finds exhilarating: "Few realities life can muster are capable of destroying the zest and richness of September and October in the northeast," he writes.

From the Author:

"In Maine, I have watched the wind being born, birthing in the western sky and then feathering the bay's silken surface with the first tentative touch of its young pinions. I have seen the nor'westers make a sea of our meadow, rolling the high grass in waves that break on the crest of our hill. And I have felt the same wind fill a sail with a hard slap that sets my boat a running.

It does the same to me. It dashes its fresh chill in my face, clears my head and sets my thoughts a running."
