Overview
From homespun textiles of wool and flax and custom-made pine and mahogany cabinetry to furnace-fired iron works and redware pottery, author Paul E. Rivard has set out to communicate the great significance of the industrial epoch in forming Maine as we know it today. Rivard, director of the Maine State Museum for fourteen years and of the American Textile History Museum for eight years, has a reverence for history that is evident throughout his work. Made in Maine offers readers a glimpse into the state's essential past, the ingenious ways by which products came to fruition as the nature of industry changed.
