Of the old and romantic regions that have played a colorful role in the development of America, none excels in such rich tradition as the Georges Valley and particularly the town of Thomaston. In Thomaston was made, and from Thomaston sailed some of the finest ships of the day, and her sea captains were the best to be found. Written in 1950, this is a lively history of the Georges Valley area from the time of settlement; a candid picture of life in the small town in the early days of garrisons, forts, and blockhouses. Black and white photographs throughout. Includes a listing of vessels built in Thomaston as well as sea captains from Thomaston. Paperback. 416 pgs.
