The History of Maine


From the Earliest Discovery of the Region by the Northmen Until the Present Time; Including a Narrative of the Voyages and Explorations of the Early Adventurers, the Manners and Customs of the Indian Tribes, the Hardships of the First Settlers, the Conflicts with the Savages, and the Gradual Advancement of the State to its Present Aspect of Opulence, Culture, and Refinement.

The first half of the book focuses on Maine history before 1700, beginning with Leif Erickson's exploration circa 1000 A.D., and continuing with descriptions of early settlement and interaction with the Indians. The second half of the book describes the wars and further settlement of the area, and culminates in the prosperous years of the late 19th century.
