I don't think there's anything quite like a Maine island community, and this book reinforces that notion in a most elegant and engaging way. Written about the town of Frenchboro on Long Island (near Bar Harbor) by a contemporary member of the founding Lunt family, Hauling By Hand tells the whole intimate story of one such village. I loved the feel of different eras and different lifestyles, the continuity and intermingling of families, the challenges and - not least - the recognition of people being people. Thoroughly researched (with access to original source information) and splendidly told. ( )
