An eclectic collections of stories will especially appear to those interested in hearing the Maine back country or California (from earthquakes to the gold rush)? both interesting. I felt the stories about turn of the century America and life of a sea captain kind of dragged? Worth while if you?re a fan of John McPhee?s style, a delightful story teller but I found that I was skipping some slower sections.
