True Grit | Nonfiction

It's not always easy to live in Maine. These authors have stared down hard work, poverty, isolation, and to live in the state they call home.

Why We Love It!


Dean Lunt, Editor

Shoutin' into the Fog

"Shoutin' into the Fog is a fascinating look at a piece of the Maine coast before it became one of picture postcards, rather an area of people struggling to get by."

Shannon Butler, Islandport

The Cows are Out!

"Trudy faces each day on the farm with grit, grace, and humor. Her love of the land, her animals, and her family shine through even in the toughest times."

Taylor McCafferty, Islandport

Whatever it Takes

"Whatever It Takes captures a time period gone by, but the qualities within its pages are timeless––resilience, optimism, and true love."
