Notes on a Lost Flute Sep 20, 2009
If you are serious about visiting Maine, I have a book recommendation that most folks would never consider a ‘travel’ volume. Kerry Hardy’s “Notes on a Lost Flute” is a splendid journey into the natural history and original inhabitants of the author’s home. I was fortunate to share dinner with Kerry on the final evening in his beloved homeland – Kerry’s family is relocating to Arizona, where his wife will fulfill her medical residency over the next two years on a Hopi reservation.
Though tinged with sadness at how much has been lost, there is a refreshing sense of joy in Kerry's talent for making connections and unraveling the past. The book is well laid out, featuring Kerry's illustrations and I have no doubt that anyone who has already been to Maine will be attracted by the familiarity. I was fascinated by new insights into plants, animals and places I have long cherished.
Not an interesting book if you have no predisposition, but if there is a trace of Maine in your soul this splendid volume will bring a smile to the face of veterans and fire the imagination of those desiring to venture to this beautiful destination. Available on Amazon.com!
