This guidebook is comprehensive yet fun. The author has an engaging style with dry wit, which pretty much eliminates the boredom factor inherent in so many guides. While all of the historical, geological, botanical, and zoological data are given, there is no rote repetition here; facts are presented in an interesting manner. Guidance in regard to everything from roadways to camping, fishing to whale watching is formulated for presentation to landlocked city folk without condescension, but rather to prevent the traveler from feeling at a loss with the unfamiliar. There are, of course, all of the usual sorts of chapters devoted to things like: National Park, museums, general sightseeing, weather peculiar to the area, accommodations, travel routes, accessibility, and nearly any other questions to resolve both before your trip and during it. Certainly, this book would interest you in taking a trip to Maine whether it was on your interest list or not.
Narrator Jack truly adds to the experience of absorbing this book with clear pronunciation, pleasant audio quality, and presentation mimicking the author's wit and enthusiasm.
