Fuzz, Feathers, and Flight is a book of many journeys, all set in a village called Harborside on the seacoast of Maine. The year is circa 1939, when the world was a different place.
There is the poignant story of a young lad’s love and devotion to a pair of seagulls as they grew from fuzz-ball chicks to feathered birds and then to flight, all in the lad’s care.
And there is a wicked good tale about how a neighbor retrieved his rifle from the bottom of an eight-foot-deep cesspool, as well as the story of how the rifle got there in the first place.
The adventures are peppered with a bit of subtle Maine wit, and what’s more, they are true! A bus to nowhere? Of course. Since nowhere could possibly be better than Harborside, nowhere is the place to go.


Bob Barker grew up in the rural coastal village of Harborside, Maine. He writes with poignancy and humor about personal experiences from his youth. Bob and his wife canoed the  Allagash Waterway, climbed Mt. Katahdin, explored Patagonia, and climbed sheer cliffs in the  Dolomites of Italy. However, he says nothing beats a day on the waters of Penobscot Bay.
