Monhegan Memories

 by Clara Burton

There is a magic about all Maine Islands, but especially about Monhegan, a magic in the rugged island and in its people. As a long-time resident of Monhegan, Clara Burton writes of the island in days past and present. She tells of trap days, of weather that shapes Monhegan life, of island food, of people who follow the New England pattern of “eat it up, wear it out, make it do, or go without.”

To the self of classic books about Maine, add Monhegan Memories.
