Abstract

Profile of Steve Longley, a son of Maine's late Independent governor, who for the past 15 years has been better known as The Ferryman. When Appalachian Trail through-hikers reach the Kennebec River at Caratunk, they invariably find Longley stationed there with his canoe, waiting to take them across what would otherwise be the most dangerous river crossing on the entire trail. Longley is paid $7,000 for the season, and is sanctioned by the Appalachian Trail Conference, based in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. He lives year-round in The Forks, about a mile from the trailhead.
