A field guide to life in lower Casco Bay filled with old time and new photos, and original drawings of island life. Its Guidelines for Island Living offers old style Yankee advice about adjusting to life offshore on Peaks Island, how to get along with ornery islanders, and general fitting in. The Guide's Historical section offers brief histories of our islands, forts, warfare, and seven local lighthouses. The Nautical Knowledge section covers water science and safety, nautical know-how, weather, tides, knots and being a boater. Last section on Local Science talks of our edible fish, tidal critters, birds, island geology and describes the Gulf of Maine, along with a story on Poco the Beluga whale.
