How Maine Changed the World by Nancy Griffin
As Down East Books® celebrates 50 years of great book publishing, it seemed appropriate to reflect upon the contributions Maine has made that have had significant cultural and historical impacts on both the United States and the World.
Did you know that the caterpillar tread, common on bulldozers and tanks, originated from the design of Lombard's steam log hauler; or that the dry plate photographic process was created by the Stanley brothers, who also invented a speed-record setting steam powered car and whose sister, Chansonetta, was a well-known photographer in her own right? Maxim's machine gun forever changed the practice of warfare. The humble peavey is a simple tool well-known to any forester or lumberjack. The ubiquitous lobster boat, the microwave oven, earmuffs, and Monopoly-all came from the minds of Mainers.
This book is a celebration of Maine's creative ingenuity - from the very large, such as Portland Head Light and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge, to the very small, such as the toothpick and the Bean boot.
