article description
What Charles and Carol McLane called an "unpretentious exercise" in the 1970s quickly evolved into a definitive history of three centuries of island habitation and use, covering hundreds of islands from the Penobscot River to Machias Bay. They discovered a pattern of early development closely related to the islands' fortunes, why islanders left at different times, and the coming of the "rusticators" in the late 1800s. Their studies generally end when islands were sold to buyers "from away." Details.
