  • Places, Island
  • Pixley - Jennifer Craig Pixley
  • 1997
  • Tremont, Great Gott Island
The lives of authors Ruth Moore and Eleanor Ruth Mayo were their own, but their private lives and the lives they led on Mount Desert Island, were so intertwined that archivists find it difficult to divide documents, stories and photographs between them. It is for this reason that this Item exists in the database. It ties together other Items that relate more to both women than to either as an individual. “Homesick For That Place: Ruth Moore Writes About Maine” by Jennifer Craig Pixley is so well conceived that it may be recommended to those who are interested in Ruth and Eleanor above many other works, but there is much to be learned from everything included here.

3658Porcupine Islands
  • Reference
  • Places, Island
  • Bar Harbor
The Porcupine Islands, named for their resemblance to a group of porcupines, in Frenchman Bay off the coast of Bar Harbor. The islands are Sheep Porcupine Island, Burnt Porcupine Island, Long Porcupine Island and Bald Porcupine Island. The islands are uninhabited and owned by Acadia National Park. They are nesting areas for a number of sea birds and access to some islands is restricted during nesting season. The islands get their distinctive shape from their formation as they were carved by retreating glaciers moving north to south. This created the gentle slope on the north side with a sharp drop off in the south end.
