The Wicked Good Book: A Guide to Maine Living (Paperback)
On our shelves now
Intergalactic travelers had their Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Evolutionists had Darwin's The Origin of Species. And now Mainers can have their very own manual for the good life in Maine. Styled around the Dangerous Book for Boys, The Wicked Good Book is a pithy, nostalgic, practical, and irreverent guide to getting the most out of living in the Pine Tree State. It includes helpful tips on everything from outsmarting blackfly attacks to living to tell about a moose attack. Also included are the necessary quotes that all lovers of Maine should know by heart; important historical moments; essential gear to wear in the woods, in the Old Port, and at bedtime. Plus, limericks to amuse; hunting tips on how to bag the bird or deer; a guide to the Mine sky; the 7 Wonders of Maine; the correct way to chop a tree' how to prepare for a Maine winter like it might be your last; identification of native flora and fauna; and more. A blend of hearty survival skills with everyday common sense and a fair amount of humor provides for the Uber-Maine experience.
