Olde Cascoe (Romance of the Maine Coast - Volume I)

$15.95

Olde Cascoe was the first of five volumes of the Maine Pioneer Settlements, Romance of the Maine Coast, series, as published by Herbert M. Sylvester. This book was originally published in 1904. Included are the illustrations as were provided in the original work. Sylvester's writing style is what brings the romance into the stories. While the author states in his Preface that this book is not a work of history, it really is, for any reader who loves history will love this book. The history included herein includes that of the Casco Bay area of the coast of Maine, including the settlements of Saco to Portland, but in particular that of Cape Elizabeth. In his Preface, Sylvester states "YE ROMANCE OF CASCO BAY is a book of free-hand sketches. Truthful enough in their setting and local coloring, they are not offered to the public as history, but appear here much as did their originals to the author when he saw them from day to day, and when more familiar with the purlieus of Casco Bay than has been his good fortune in later years. These old things have the fascinating mystery and romance of bygone days, and a bygone race; and are not the less delightful to recall because they look out over a sheet of water, the beauty and charm of which are unrivalled by any other part of the Maine Coast, — a sea-front unequalled by any other from Quoddy Head to St. Augustine, in its wild, stormy grandeur and windy headlands, or in its countless islands and roadsteads asleep in its summer sunshine." Other books in this series are: Olde York, The Sokoki Trail, Olde Pemaquid and The Land of St. Castin. 6x9, softcover, 193 pages. ISBN: 9781935573067.
