One-Eyed Poacher and the Maine Woods

Based on a recommendation from friend and fellow Maine Guide Bud Farwell, I recently got my hands on a copy of “The One-Eyed Poacher and the Maine Woods” by Edmund Ware Smith through inter-library loan. Since it arrived I’ve been reading with delight the stories about Thomas Jefferson Coongate, the infamous one-eyed poacher. He’s a sort of Robin Hood character and his exploits at poaching, drinking, being the consummate bachelor, and outwitting the game warden are fun and entertaining to read. If you enjoy tales of the woods you might enjoy it as much as I have. Now I just need to find a copy to purchase that won’t break the bank.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
