by William E. Priest

Maine has always been home, where Mother Nature carved a magnificent glacial paradise. Maine is a place where the ocean appears to float the morning sun, where the beauty and healing of nature resonates, creating a unique feeling of peace and pleasure.

From the Great North Woods, to the lakes and rivers, to the invigorating salt air, this is my Maine, the inspiration and foundation for my poetry. The book is entertaining with lessons of life, nature, positive thoughts, motivation, and renewal.

Bill’s eloquent way with words and his collection of musings do not disappoint! You will feel and smell all the seasons of Maine as his words lead you down a path. Laugh, sigh, smile, and think…that is what will happen as you take this fascinating journey.

—Crystal Stover, Windham, Maine

Captivating. A wonderful poetic tapestry of Maine life. A skillful weaving of humor, nature, inspiration, wildlife, real life, and salt air. Clearly a work of love, filled with inspiration and hope.
