Following are some items that were mentioned during the 28 February 2013 Fieldstone Common interview with Ingrid Grenon, author of Down East Schooners and Shipmasters.
Down East Schooners and Shipmasters was published by The History Press, is available for purchase from major books sellers online and off such as Amazon.com.
Down East Schooners and Shipmasters covers the early history of Down East Maine from 400 years ago starting with Native Americans and exploration by the French. The book continues on with stories of the “Rusticators” who settled Maine and the ship builders, sailors and shipmasters that heavily populated the area. Three generations of the Foss family figures prominently in the book.
The History Press, the publisher of Down East Schooners & Shipmasters, donated two copies of the book that were given as “door prizes” during the live show to listeners in New Jersey and Massachusetts. A big thank you to The History Press for their generosity!
