This excellent book is the story of the March girls' father during the Civil War and is a thought-provoking read that covers that period and the moral dilemmas of every war. Marty Marsh, Fort Collins, Colo

This excellent book is the story of the March girls' father during the Civil War and is a thought-provoking read that covers that period and the moral dilemmas of every war. Marty Marsh, Fort Collins, Colo. The Imperial Presidency by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr, provides a stark awakening as to how vulnerable our constitutional system is to presidential decisions made without the benefit of an adequate execution of sufficient checks and balances.

In this critically acclaimed Maine classic, first published in 1945, Helen Hamlin writes of her adventures teaching school at a remote Maine lumber camp and then of living deep in the Maine wilderness with her game warden husband. Her experiences are a must-read for anyone who loves the untamed nature and wondrous beauty of Maine's north woods and the unique spirit of those who lived there. In the 1930s, in spite of being warned that remote Churchill Depot was no place for a woman, the remarkable Helen Hamlin set off at age twenty to teach school at the isolated lumber camp at the headwaters of the Allagash River. She eventually married a game warden and moved deeper into the wilderness. In her book, Hamlin captures that time in her life, complete with the trappers, foresters, lumbermen, woods folk, wild animals, and natural splendor that she found at Umsaskis Lake and then at Nine Mile Bridge on the St. John River.

Nice book, odd sort of arrangement - but I don't usually read this genre. I bought as I was headed to the Allagash on a canoe trip - starting from Churchill Dam (where the school in the book was). ... didn't do much for the trip honestly, but by the end I was sad when the last chapter passed - like losing a friend. Engaging story.

It's real. She was a Maine pioneer!

Considering that this was Helen Hamlin's first book, she did an amazing job of telling about her experiences in the wilderness. She was a gritty woman who seemed eager to take on any adventure involving the wilderness. She talks about traveling outdoors when it was 50 below zero. She acquired a lot of skills and likely learned a lot from her game warden husband. But I get the impression she was quite capable of standing on her own two feet as she could hunt and skin deer, fish, cut wood, bake bread, snow shoe, manage sled dogs and keep herself entertained for weeks on end knitting and doing crossword puzzles. Her writing moves along quickly because she has so much to tell. She also wrote another book about Maine which I would also like to read. It's interesting that she and Curly divorced sometime after her book was published and he died in his forties. Toward the latter part of the book, I thought some of his comments to his wife were insulting and I wondered if something was brewing between them. Maybe she was just too independent for him. She did, however, find love a second time and went on to have 3 children with her new husband.

This was a gift to my son who said he loved it and couldn't put it down. sorry I don't have more specific information but I can tell you he has read more than one book of this sorts and enjoys them greatly. For him to say he couldn't put it down is a very big compliment!

What an interesting book about life in the backwoods of Maine and how they survived how they lived off the land.

Love it! An excellent story of how a person can get by and keep their sanity in such a secluded area. Love these stories of how life was back then; especially logging/sawmill/the great woods stories. Hamlin was a great writer. And to think she lived it!

Living in Maine is exciting and this is a must read for those new comers. I got the book because life time Mainers enjoyed the book as I am.
