Found this book at the Bangor Folks Festival from a family member of the author. Signed copy that he found in her garage with a bunch of other of her books.
Elinor’s nephew was a park ranger in Baxter State Park in the 1950s. I was constantly pulling my Baxter park map out to see where they hiking as they were often on old logging roads or bushwhacking off-trail.
I’ve backpacked and hiked throughout Baxter and was fascinated to hear stories from the 50s from a warden and his aunt about the park and descriptions of places I’ve been to and some I’ve not. Many of the logging camps were still there and cutting in some places.
