Maine: The Pine Tree State
(Blastoff Reader, Aug. 1, 2013)
Maine owes its idyllic coastline to Ice Age glaciers. They carved the cliffs, bays, and inlets that punctuate Maine's rugged shores. Meanwhile, the state's interior is covered in vast forests of pine, spruce, and maple. This book introduces students to the land, history, and lifestyle of the largest New England state.
