Excerpt from Carleton's Pthfinder and Gazetteer: Of the Hunting and Fishing Resorts O the State of Maine
The Pathfinder and Gazetteer of the Fishing and Hunting Resorts of the State of Maine, together with a Digest of the laws pertaining to Inland Fisheries and Game, which now appears for the first time, is intended to help the sportsman, tourist, and summer visitor to Maine in planning his vacation and disposing of his time to the best advantage, and thus to enable him the more thoroughly to enjoy and appreciate the section of this State he visits, and get the most possible enjoyment in the time he can spend in vacation, or on a fishing or hunting trip.
Many publications have been issued from time to time advertising some of the more prominent hunting and fishing resorts of the State of Maine, all of them no doubt good, but in each case only sections of the State are alluded to, and were issued by parties particularly interested in the particular section advertised.
This book deals with the entire State, and is authoritative, and it is believed that there will be found in every locality substantially what is herein stated,- I have not exaggerated in the least. Sportsmen with limited means, who cannot afford to stop at high priced hotels, will find herein where there are good fishing and hunting resorts, where the expenses can be kept within the means of a large class who cannot afford to patronize the highest priced hotels.
The writer is L. T. Carleton, Chairman of the Commissioners of Inland Fisheries and Game of the State of Maine.
No one is better aware than the writer himself of the imperfections almost inseparable from the first edition of a guide book.
In the preparation of this hook the writer has received most material aid from many old hunters, trappers, guides, sporting camp proprietors, railroad officials, hotel proprietors and the press of the State, and to these he particularly desires to express his acknowledgment.
"Go, little book. God send thee good passage."
