"SUMMER RESORTS AND KIDS' CAMPS" ~ Book Talks and Signings slated for this fall

Authors Dale Potter-Clark and Charles L. Day are pleased to announce that after three years of exhaustive research, personal interviews with people all over the US, site visits, writing, editing and re-writing "The Founders and Evolution of SUMMER RESORTS AND KIDS' CAMPS on Four Lakes in Central Maine" has been released! This book is 350+ pages and includes 200+ vintage photos. Resorts and kids' camps were located at 39 locations on Lakes Torsey, Echo, Lovejoy, northern Maranacook and "Lake Myra" - several went by different names over the years. Few are still in operation and this book will tell you which ones are. Also included is the coming of the railroad, steamboats, the trolley and sketches about some of the people involved.
