A pictorial tribute to the boats of Penobscot Bay, which make their living carrying sight seers and eco-tourists along the coast of Maine. The images in this book are termed "photographic impressions"-paintings created from photos and software, using a stylus as the paintbrush, resulting in a unique form of artwork. In addition to the beautiful images of these boats-fourteen schooners and a ketch-Fred provides a bit of background on each of the craft. Bonus: five Maine Lighthouses.

Lovely book. Hoping for a sequel with even more beauty and history. Part of the reason the photography (and the subjects), get to me is that I am old. The beauty and the wonder of these vessels, like steam engines and other things I remember, is a welcome shot in the arm for me. Thank everyone involved for me. I truly appreciate the book.
