Maine is a colorful jigsaw puzzle made up of towns and communities that fit together to give the state a unique identity. This photographic collection features Farmington, Wilton, Kingfield, and Sugarloaf, a perfect example of communities working as complements to create an area with a wide appeal to diverse interests. While Farmington serves as the political, educational, and commercial center, Wilton acts as the industrial hub, and Kingfield and Sugarloaf provide the area with recreational attractions. Though the towns may differ in their focus, a scenic beauty does run throughout—whether it be the gentle waters in Wilson Lake, the cascades of the Sandy River, or the stalwart splendor of themountains. However, to truly understand any place means meeting its people. This volume focuses on three families in particular: the Bass family in Wilton; the Mills family in Farmington; and the Winter family in Kingfield and Sugarloaf.

Frank Sleeper, historian and author of several Arcadia titles, has compiled another fascinating treasure of images, many published here for the first time, that illuminates and celebrates a special region of Maine. These pictures, combined with their stories, catalogue a history of the area's successes and failures, but they primarily capture the amazing triumph of the human spirit.
