Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Hilary never tires of exploring Maine, always seeking out the offbeat and quirky, and rarely resisting the invitation of a backroad. To her husband’s dismay, she inherited her grandmother’s shopping gene and can’t pass a used-book store, artisans’ gallery, or antiques shop without browsing. She’s equally curious about food, and has never met a lobster she didn’t like. She still divides her year between the coast and the mountains, residing with her husband, photographer Tom Nangle, and two oversized dogs, all of whom share her passions for long walks and Maine-made ice cream.

Moon handbooks are so comprehensive and up-to-date. They include the sightseeing highlights of any particular area, a nice smattering of places to stay overnight, and a few tried-and-true restaurants in the area too. They give websites, phone numbers, prices of major attractions, length and difficulty level of popular hikes, and with nice zoomed-in maps of towns and small regions. I own 12-15 Moon handbooks already and I would not think of leaving home without one. And I can always count on Amazon to have the latest edition of whichever book I need.
That said, this is a good book for the purpose. Geographic coverage is exhaustive, but listings are just a small sample of recommended options. Historical and cultural contexts are minimal.
Personally, I prefer the thicker Explorer's Guide, but this book will work just as well for the casual tourist. If you're interested in the outdoors, this book provides a good summary of top attractions. For those keen on spending most of their time in Portland and the coastal towns, the other book is better.
Speaking of Portland, if you come to Maine for any length of time whatsoever, be sure to include Portland on the itinerary.
