The pristine natural beauty of the Moosehead Lake Region is legendary. Towering white pines, clear, free-flowing rivers, rugged, massive Mount Kineo, and the unforgettable, stunning expanse of the lake itself have offered spiritual renewal to civilization-weary people for centuries. This fascinating visual history captures the essence of the Moosehead Lake Region, and reveals the many people and places that have been important in the area's past. Included are photographs of the grand hotels and the Mount Kineo House; the steamboats that plied the waters of the lake; camps such as Camp Lucky and Camp Comfort; Henry Red Eagle and the hermit of Moose Island, John Cussack. The accompanying captions include a wealth of information as well as excerpts from interviews with people who spent their lives on and around Moosehead Lake.
