Book Description: Back in the days of the lumberjack and river drive, supplies and equipment were moved up Maine's most remote river by towboats - large, wooden barge-like vessels - which were towed upriver by horses or oxen on the shore. In this story, eleven-year-old Ben takes the trip of a lifetime when he accompanies his Uncle Horace on one of the last towboat trips up Maine's wild Allagash River. Along the way he encounters moose and bear, meets new friends, and makes some surprising discoveries about himself and Maine's north woods. Rich in history, lore, and culture, Allagash River Towboat portrays a colorful side of Maine's history and provides readers a glimpse of the life of Maine rivermen in the 1930s. Ben's exciting and unforgettable adventure will be enjoyed by readers of any age.

Book Description: In 1960, acclaimed American author John Steinbeck (Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men) embarked on a three-month road trip around the United States with his wife’s gentleman poodle, Charley, in tow. Steinbeck’s aim was to rediscover the country he had last roamed as a young man. Ultimately, the journey would be as much about self-discovery. The resulting book, Travels with Charley, was a bestseller and is now counted among the classic American road novels. In 2003, writer Mike Lauterborn set off by van to follow Steinbeck’s path, to both learn about the author and see how America and Americans had changed in the intervening forty-plus years. Along the way, he hoped to find some of the people and places Steinbeck had encountered while taking in new sights and experiences. Travels with Charley aided Lauterborn during the planning stages of his own trip and prepared him for hardships Steinbeck had also faced, including vehicle troubles, adverse weather, solitude, and health woes. The author’s words would inspire, console, and haunt the young writer. Ultimately, the trail would lead Lauterborn to some of America’s most enduring landmarks, from broad rivers, rugged coastlines, and azure-blue volcanic lakes to barren deserts, quaint small towns, and sprawling cities. He met people from all walks of life and was struck by their common resilience, work ethic, and patriotism. In the end, however, he was most impressed by the formidable scope of the journey the ailing Steinbeck had undertaken. This book is a tribute to the author’s tireless pursuit of the noble quest.
