"Cover Story" piece on Maine history, which has been a high school graduation re
"Cover Story" piece on Maine history, which has been a high school graduation requirement since 1984, but no one has seen fit to publish a textbook since Down East Books published "Maine Dirigo 'I Lead' " in 1980. A new Maine history textbook published by the University of Maine Press is promised in February, but teachers are skeptical because it has been four years in the making and is already ten months overdue. The new book is based loosely on the source of its funding, "The Pine Tree State: Pre-history to the Present," a 1995 University of Maine Press book edited by Joel Eastman, Edwin Churchill and Richard Judd. As many as 5,000 copies will be printed in the first run and the book will sell for $38.
