Quick Overview

Features

The Settlers

A six-year-old Amish Community in Aroostook County works together through winters filled with tragedy and record snowfall to keep their settlement alive.

Gentle Giants

The cat's out of the bag: the Maine Coon is one of the most loyal, personable, and lovable breeds around. In a new book, The Maine Coon Cat, Maine Coon enthusiast Liza Gardner Walsh delves into the mysterious history of this regal feline, and offers tips on how to find one of your own.

133 Maine-Made Gifts

This holiday season, we're celebrating the Maine craftspeople. From clothing designers and artists to woodworkers and coffee roasters, we went on a statewide search to find gifts made right here in the Pine Tree State. Shop our collection of more than one hundred gifts for everyone on your list.

Sanctuary

On any given night in Maine, hundreds of teenagers have no place to call home. A few find their way to safety — and, maybe, a better future — at Bangor's Shaw House.

Where in Maine?

Can you identify the location of this towering tree?

Editor's Note

December doesn’t officially begin in our house until we’ve cut down the family Christmas tree. I grew up on Cousins Island in Yarmouth, and my brother and I would drag our parents out year after year to what was then Knight’s Tree Farm in North Yarmouth. We insisted on cutting our own — there was no corner market stand for us. The selection process could take five minutes or, more likely, two hours. We would meander through the rows, sometimes braving feet of snow, and always adamantly debating the merits of one tree versus another. Not the right shade of green. Doesn’t smell strong enough. Too short. Too skinny. Not enough character. Finally “the one” would speak to us, and we’d strap it to the roof of the car and head home.
