Here is the context for understanding (and enjoying) those headlines about "kingdom" buyers, clearcutting referenda, paper mill buyouts, camp leases, land claims settlements, a new national park, and more. Rolde tells the stories of the Native Americans, French, English, Puritans, settlers, loggers, speculators, great proprietors, surveyors, soldiers, squatters, industrialists, game poachers, conservationists, sportsmen (and women), nature lovers, property rightists, and preservationists who have shaped our state. This readable history of land ownership in Maine makes history--and the headlines--come alive!
