In "Nine Mile Bridge", Helen Hamlin vividly details her years living deep in the Maine woods and chronicles a way of life that is nearly forgotten. At just twenty, she taught school at Churchill Depot, a tiny and isolated lumber camp at the headwaters of the Allagash River that was "no place for a woman." She then married a fish and game warden and spent the next three years living even deeper in the wilderness. The young couple lived alone and snowbound for months, knowing there was only a handful of other people within thousands of square miles of unbroken country. First published in 1945, Helen Hamlin's remarkable memoir is now back in print.
