As a Maine Guide for 20 years and a hunter and fisherman since childhood, Christian Potholm knows the woods and waters of Maine from the coast to the North Woods. He brings it all to life with these humorous tales, astonishing and intriguing characters, and real-life dialogue. These are authentic, how-they-talk, what-they-do, Maine hunting and fishing stories with Maine guides, wardens, and sports, all presented in full blossom. Steeped in the old-time lore of the Maine outdoors, these yarns do more than capture hunting and fishing tradition in Maine, they also bring to life the rural subculture with all its time honored values and real people.
Christian P. Potholm is DeAlva Stanwood Alexander professor of government at Bowdoin College and author numerous books, including This Splendid Game, Maine: The Dynamics of Political Change, Winning at War, and Maine: An Annotated Bibliography. He lives in Harpswell, Maine.
