A Flatlander's Guide to Maine'

Whether you're from away' or not, you'll want this book

Some people are born lucky - others have to move to Maine from somewhere else. Mark Ricketts has a book for those poor souls: 'A Flatlander's Guide to Maine,' ($16.95, Islandport Press) is filled with amusing observations that have been colorfully illustrated by this famous flatlander.

Some may be familiar with Ricketts's work in The Bangor Metro with his column by colorful Maine native Earl Hornswaggle, the oldest man in the state. Or with 'Moose Mountain,' which classed up the weekly publication The Maine Edge (if that's possible).
