Wonderful collection of this Maine author's poetry. Wilbert Snow was an interesting man, a Mainer born in Whitehead Island, a lobsterman, a teacher, a Bowdoin College graduate, an educator, a poet and governor of Connecticut for 13 days. He returned to Maine after an exciting and illustrious career that saw him crisscross the country and died in Spruce Head, ME. Some of these poems were previously published in Scribner’s Magazine and The Nation.
