The Rangeley Lakes were the crucible of Maine's nineteenth-century sporting culture, and the Rangeley boat evolved out of this distinctive time and place. As essential to Rangeley as sporting camps, fishing guides, and brook trout, the namesake boat remains a true icon.

The Rangeley and Its Region tells how entwined the boat, people, lakes, town, and economy became over a century. This engaging story includes native voices and historical photographs, and touches on sportfishing, rod-building, fly-tying, boatbuilding, guiding, and the summer culture of a remote and treasured town. B&W photographs, maps and charts
