Your Maine

What's your favorite mountain hike in Maine?

The North Pond Hermit

Christopher Knight ran into the woods of Rome, Maine, in 1986, set up camp, and didn't leave for twenty-seven years. He had only one brief interaction with another human during that time and committed more than 1,000 burglaries in order to feed and clothe himself. He was finally caught on April 4 stealing from Pine Tree Camp.

A Haven for Hermits

The entrepreneurial success of the “Hermit of the Maine Desert” shows a longtime fascination with recluses in the Pine Tree State.

What's in a Picture?

Prior to Puffins

Speed Trap

After a kidnapping, Jackman’s highway “patrolman” is back on duty.

Feathers and Suds

Maine birders are on the look out for some rare breeds — no binoculars required.

Where's the Fire?

Twenty-five years after Maine voted for Enhanced 911, the system remains a work in progress. But it does work (sort of) and it’s making progress (gradually). Just give it time (and money). A story of unintended consequences, the birth of a bureaucracy, and the quirky workings of Maine politics.

On the Rocks

A village garden is blessed with a bucolic view.

The Ultimate (Maine) Home Enthusiast

Television personality Steve Thomas settles 
into a new job with Habitat for Humanity 
— and a Penobscot Bay island home.

Light Years Ahead

When Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s founder Mike St. Pierre couldn’t find the ultralight outdoor equipment he wanted, he created it himself.

Summer Complaints

One island resident laments her seemingly endless role as hostess during Maine’s popular season.

Home Kitchen Cafe

By Nancy Heiser

How do you make the best sticky and cinnamon buns in the world? Practice, practice, practice.

That’s just what James Hatch did this winter, as workers dismantled and renovated Home Kitchen Cafe in Rockland, the casual restaurant he owns with his wife, Susan Schiro.

The Train to Success

New York Times bestselling author Christina Baker Kline talks about the Maine inspirations behind her latest — and most successful — novel, Orphan Train.

Tasting Tour

The Maine Sea Salt Company offers visitors a behind the scenes look at the manufacture of a popular seasoning.
