Down East magazine recommends ‘Historical Atlas of Maine’ as holiday gift

The “Historical Atlas of Maine” was mentioned in a December Down East magazine article about three books to give this holiday season that capture Maine’s rich history. The “Historical Atlas of Maine,” the result of a 15-year scholarly project led by UMaine researchers, offers a geographical and historical interpretation of Maine, from the end of the last ice age to the year 2000. The volume was published in 2015 by University of Maine Press. It was edited by UMaine historian Richard Judd and UMaine geographer Stephen Hornsby, with cartography by Michael Hermann. The book is unique, according to the article, because it’s “an inexhaustible reference work that doubles as a first-class coffee-table book.”
