Back in the days of the lumberjack and the river drive, supplies and equipment were moved up Maine's most remote river by towboats--wooden barge-like structures--which were towed upriver by horses or oxen on the shore.
In this charming book for younger readers, eleven-year-old Ben accompanies his Uncle Horace on a trip upriver.
He has an adventure he'll not soon forget as he discovers the beauty of the wilderness and makes fast friends with his uncle's crew.
Filled with action and lore, Allagash Towboat portrays a side of Maine's colorful history seldom examined and is a must-have for schools, libraries, and anyone interested in this fascinating aspect of Maine's past.
