Beatrice Craig is the foremost historian of the Upper St John River Valley, and she's just published a book on the history of the Valley up to WWI. Here's the blurb:
Quote:
The "land in between" is the upper Saint John Valley, a region straddling the Maine-New Brunswick border. A zone of contacts between different Native American cultures until the arrival of the Europeans, it was disputed by the British and the French in the colonial period and settled by Acadians and French Canadians in the eighteenth century. To this day, it has remained the site of a distinct French-American culture, and its residents have striven to preserve their specificity and unity despite the international boundary. The Land in Between is a narrative survey history of this fascinating and unique region and is also designed to serve as a reference for teachers, librarians, archivists, and historians. It includes documents (many translated from the original), maps, and an extensive bibliography.

I've read pre-publication drafts of this book and very highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in this region. Buy it at your local independent bookstore!! (it's also available at Amazon and other online booksellers)
