Summary : Bustins lies in a quiet corner of inner Casco Bay, just a mile or two offshore from the hustle and bustle of the tourist mecca of Freeport, yet most people know little, if anything, about it. Bustins features more than one hundred homes, some more than a century old, and boasts its own ferry service. Still, it has no electricity, no businesses, and almost no vehicles. Ben Carr, a long-time Bustins summer resident, takes readers from the island's beginnings as a farming community and a stop for fishermen through its days as a year-round community to its transformation into a summer colony with its struggles to remain a summer oasis while adapting to a changing world. He explains what the island means to him and why he considers it, above all, home.

Summary : As a physicist, Alan Lightman has always held a scientific view of the world. But one summer evening, while looking at the stars from a small boat at sea, Lightman was overcome by the overwhelming sensation that he was merging with something larger than himself--an eternal unity, something absolute and immaterial. The result is an inspired, lyrical meditation from the acclaimed author of Einstein's Dreams that explores these seemingly contradictory impulses. Lightman draws on sources ranging from Saint Augustine's conception of absolute truth to Einstein's theory of relativity, and gives us a profound inquiry into the human desire for truth and meaning, and a journey along the different paths of religion and science that become part of that quest. This small but provocative book explores the tension between our yearning for certainty and permanence versus the modern scientific view that all things in the physical world are uncertain and impermanent.

Summary : Winner of the Caldecott Medal! For fans of Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Make way for Ducklings. "Out on the islands that poke their rocky shores above the waters of Penobscot Bay, you can watch the time of the world go by, from minute to minute, hour to hour, from day to day . . ." So begins this classic story of one summer on a Maine island from the author of One Morning in Maine and Blueberries for Sal. The spell of rain, the gulls and a foggy morning, the excitement of sailing, the quiet of the night, the sudden terror of a hurricane, and, in the end, the peace of the island as the family packs up to leave are shown in poetic language and vibrant, evocative pictures.

Summary : Since the development of photography in the midnineteenth century, the camera has been used as a tool of both discovery and preservation. Photographs bring alive our image of the past, and can open a floodgate of memories and nostalgia or inspire curiosity and a sense of history. The Casco Bay Islands have long been one of Maine's most treasured hideaway places. Connected to Portland and the mainland only by ferry, a trip to the islands is a trip into another world. Fairy-tale Victorian cottages are surrounded by beautiful beaches, boats, and an atmosphere of tranquility. Their separation from the outside world has allowed the islands to preserve their unique identities and rich sense of history in the face of twentieth-century changes.
