The official book of Maine s treasured and New England s only national park, on the occasion of the park s centennial. Created in 1916, and encompassing 45,000 acres on two islands and a mainland peninsula on the rugged coast of Maine, Acadia National Park is a jewel of granite mountains, filigreed coastlines, unique cultural resources, dazzling night skies, and precious communities of plant and animal life. Drawing more than 2.5 million visitors each year, Acadia is one of the ten most popular national parks in the United States. The only illustrated book officially published with the Friends of Acadia, this stunning portfolio of photographs reveals Acadia s diverse habitats and brings home the contrasts of pounding ocean and silent coves, bald mountain summits and deep forest valleys, as never before seen.The essays convey the unseen story of Acadia: its history as a national park; the critical role of the founding families in its creation; the past and current importance of private stewardship; and its status as a unique park forged in a particular time and place in history. "Acadia National Park" celebrates the essence of this special place and offers a cherished journey into its past, present, and future."

Seal Harbor and Acadia National Park are areas rich with history and natural beauty. Several hundred photographs, taken by Seal Harbor's original residents, inspired this pictorial history of the well-known resort and surrounding Acadia National Park. A perusal through Revisiting Seal Harbor and Acadia National Park will reveal to the reader the natural beauty of the area, through views that attracted the early rusticators and created such dedication from the island's summer and winter residents, that Acadia National Park was born. The pages within trace the community's history, from its humble beginnings as a small fishing hamlet, through its metamorphosis into a Victorian-era summer resort, and on through the park's development, an economic boon for the island's residents. From images of a time filled with sweeping Victorian dresses, grand yachts, and wildwood hikes, to accounts of the area's prosperity in the 1910s and 1920s-when the area became synonymous with the Rockefeller and Ford names-Revisiting Seal Harbor and Acadia National Park invites the reader to take a lingering look into the lives of the early islanders and summer visitors.

How did she navigate the world of venture capitalists and investment bankers to engineer the sale of her company and reap a personal fortune? And what does her subsequent odyssey to buy and donate a new national park in Maine’s north woods—thus repaying what she regards as the “harmonic debt to the planet” she incurred by manufacturing beauty products—tell us about America and the American dream? Queen Bee is a fascinating biography of a fascinating woman, her game-changing skin-care company, and the quest to create a national park in the north woods. A richly textured portrait of the woman who built Burt’s Bees from nothing and altered the global business of skin care. A tightly woven story of the paper-industry exodus, the giant clearance sale of the north woods, the downward spiral of paper-company towns, and the battle for a new national park. A tale of the American Dream in action— what it can do for the fortunate few who are in the right place at the right time with wits and determination, and what it can do to the unfortunate many who find themselves on the wrong side of “creative destruction.”
