First published in 1856 by Charles P. Ilsley, a Portland, Maine newspaper Editor, "Forest and Shore" captivated readers with classic tales of revenge, redemption, love, and the courage of the human spirit. His stories, dedicated to "The Sons and Daughters of Maine, Wherever Found," brought to life the worlds of wreckers, castaways, and a family waiting out a mythic gale, women sold into servitude, and personal experiences both of the French and Indian Wars and the American Revolution. This updated 150th Anniversary Edition weaves Ilsley's stories together with striking illustrations, detailed footnotes, poetry sources, articles, and visual references. These added elements bring the contemporary reader a deeper understanding of its original historical context, and place "Forest and Shore" in the modern literary arena. 2006 paperback, 399 pages.
