The author, Sandra S Newman, will be in Northern Maine signing her newly released book "Life and Times on Pleasant Pond" in Island Falls and Houlton, Maine
This fascinating book chronicles the lives of families who settled in Maine's northernmost county, Aroostook. Here in the quaint community of Island Falls, these families developed one of the area's most treasured bodies of water, Pleasant Pond, in Island Falls. With historical maps and photographs spanning more than 150 years, the author uniquely weaves history and memories with The Pond's residents' personal stories bringing this magical place to life.
Theodore Roosevelt discovered Island Falls in 1878 and enjoyed three visits to the home and hunting camp of his lifelong friend, Bill Sewall, son of one the town's original settlers. Through the joint efforts of President Teddy Roosevelt and Maine's former Governor Llewellyn Powers, the woodlands around this area of Aroostook County are protected and in the Martha A. Powers Trust.
