Synopsis: Moxie, a drink rooted in the 19th century, suddenly finds a rabid following and a festival devoted to its qualities, 125 years later. Like he did with his award-winning first book, When Towns Had Teams, Maine author Jim Baumer continues to mine the history of his home state of Maine, this time weaving a readable account about Moxie, the soft drink that was once bigger than Pepsi and Coke. Drawing on some of the better source books about Moxie, Baumer has created the first concise, yet thoroughly readable history of the drink. Beyond that, he helps explain why his hometown of Lisbon Falls has become the hub of the Moxie universe, with its annual festival, and details some of the characters behind Moxie's continued cult-like popularity.
About the Author: Jim Baumer is a Moxie drinker and grew up in Lisbon Falls. He cares deeply about small communities and the people who inhabit them. Moxietown is his second book and a follow-up to the award-winning When Towns Had Teams, which celebrated the heyday of town team baseball in Maine. He currently resides across the river from Lisbon Falls, in Durham, with his lovely wife, and their Sheltie, Bernie, who is old and deaf, and who will eat anything, but does not like carbonated drinks--Moxie included.
