Olde Pemaquid (Romance of the Maine Coast - Volume IV)

$15.95

Olde Pemaquid was the fourth 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 1909. Included are the illustrations as were provided in the original work. From the Early Explorers at Sagadahoc chapter: "As one sails up the Kennebec in these days, one finds patches of shore that are apparently unchanged from the coming of Champlain. The same bold headlands, the same reaches of salt marsh, the same bands of tawny sands hooping the curving shores of the narrowing bays, or gilding the jutting spurs of the evergreens that hold apart their emerald cups, are here as in the days when Waymouth strode up Hunnewell’s Beach with his jester and story-teller Rosier not far behind. The waters roll in from an unbroken horizon, oceanward, and pound the black walls of stone as they have for the innumerable centuries. They iterate the Litany of Nature now as they did in the days of the Cabots, the same ceaseless monody of the sea under the baton of the iridescent spray, keeping the tale of the tides with rhythmic notation. One hears to-day by the sea the Song of the Centuries, that began when the last glacier had melted away and the silt of its medial moraine had been garnished with a riant vegetation, and the hills had begun to be clothed with the verdure of the woods. In Cabot’s day the shag of these shores was not so ragged as now; for, except on the marsh-lands, the greenery was interminable, the woods rolling back inland, unbroken and unscarred, while the islands were tree-sheltered and embowered with fruitful vines. The wild grape was indigenous to all the islands along the coast, and delicious to the palate, as Champlain discovered on his third and last voyage down the Maine Coast. These barren, tree-denuded heaps of rack mid-seas, were, in his time, oases of verdure; and it is only as the fishermen came that they have cut their trees for shelters, fishing-stages’ and fire-wood. It was a vandal tax upon the picturesque, but an inevitable." Other books in this series are: Olde Cascoe, Olde York, The Sokoki Trail and The Land of St. Castin. 6x9, softcover, 245 pages.
