Review

"MAINE ICONS ... is a love letter to what makes Maine Maine, from black flies and Stephen King to whoopie pies and the Big Chicken Barn...."   --The Boston Globe

"Part travel guide, part food journal, part history.... It's the kind of book to keep in the summer camp for day-trip ideas ... a welcome gift to the couple making their first visit to the Pine Tree State, and the perfect bedside read for all those not lucky enough to live here year round."   --Down East Magazine

" ... [The Mayos] put together 50 iconic symbols that best epitomize the state ... from the expected (lighthouses, lobster, chowder) to the unexpected (Maine's female senators) to the delightful (puffins). Some are just plain fun, such as the inclusion of Stephen King...."

From the Inside Flap

Maine is many things to many people—a haven in a world of headaches, a fir-stippled paradise where summer comes slow and easy, a place that is heartbreaking to leave and a relief to return to. It is the way life should be. More specifically, Maine is 3,500 miles of enchanting coastline, the 5,267-foot elevation of Mount Katahdin, and of course her hardy, friendly folks. Maine Icons illustrates the quintessential symbols that make Maine so fascinating and unique.

Profiled here are fifty classic symbols of this extraordinary state, revealing little-known facts, longtime secrets, and historical legends. From bean hole beans to L.L.Bean, here’s the inside story about the very things that give this state its character.

Did you know that the annual Maine Lobster Festival includes a parade, a lobster-crate race, and more than 20,000 pounds of lobster cooked in the world’s biggest lobster boiler? That it was a woman, Cornelia Thurza “Fly Rod” Crosby, who became the first licensed, registered Maine Guide in 1897? Or that the earmuff was patented in the 1870s by young Chester Greenwood, who went on to be named one of America’s top fifteen outstanding inventors? For Mainers and newcomers alike, Maine Icons will be a treasured keepsake of this charming state.
