Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788421662, CD-ROM)Ten years of painstaking research went into this history. Bourne details the settlement of Wells and of Kennebunk, Maine, the allocation of lands, the organization of courts, the establishment of churches, the building of roads and other transportation, the arrival of settlers, and the establishment of Wells as a shire town, up to the incorporation of Kennebunk. Bourne also provides sketches and details of the lives of the settlers themselves; their occupations, as well as their religious, social, and military involvements. This book does not just present facts and dates; it details what life was like at the time. The sketches create a personal history of the time. They provide an insight into an individual's "peculiar characteristics; his acts in town and private affairs; his family and business connections; [and] when taken collectively, furnish a concise history, and show at once his private worth and capacity, and his value as a citizen." A fullname and subject index provides easy access to information about the people and places detailed in this book.
