Abstract

"Down East Bookshelf" piece on "My Love Affair with the State of Maine," by Scott Mackenzie with Ruth Goode, first published in 1955. In its third edition, the book is set in Goose Rocks Beach on the southern coast. In the mid-1940s, Mackenzie and her friend, Dorothy Mignault, purchased the community's general store and also opened a bowling alley and rented out guest cottages. After the great fire of 1947, the women returned to New York City and gradually stopped visiting Maine.
