Red sky at night, sailors delight

Red sky at morning, sailors take warning….

     Remembering her grandfather’s dire weather prediction, the young girl stares at the morning’s inflamed sky.  Traveling in a canoe deep in the Maine woods is not where Olivia should be-but that’s exactly where she is.

Suddenly, lightning strikes the nearby shore nearly jumping the girl out of her skin. Looking towards the sound, the floating apparition of log cabin flickers over a vacant lot.  Inside-a young ranger is looking out a window- they exchange untended smiles-the scene fades under the aroma of a blown out match.

     Headin’ North is the third book in an exciting trilogy and Vol. V in the Allagash Tails collection. The 324 pages of intrigue that includes 29 illustrations and historic photographs-where the reader will tag along on a family’s 92-mile wilderness canoe adventure. The book is sure to delight readers in what can only be described as classic Maine.

     Read stories from yesterday and today to find out how Olivia experiences the North Maine Woods in a whole new way. 

 The book is $19.05 plus $1.05 sales tax= $20.10.  Please add $2.50 for shipping.   (Maine libraries and schools are exempt from Maine sales tax)

There is a special feeling to the Allagash;
a sense of adventure, the thrill of getting
away from it all!

But in the dark of night there is something else.

A shadow lingers, hiding beyond the reach of the lantern’s

fingers of light.  It remains obscure in the midst of the

evergreens and old growth.  

Among the campfires and s’mores, a bone chilling draft

embraces all.  Shivering, we draw our coats tighter
to protect against the rawness
In this mystery adventure, journey with ten-year old Olivia as
her family continues to canoe the world famous Allagash River.
In the prequel to the popular An Allagash Haunting,
they’ve only been on the water for four days and already Livy
has experienced enough to last a lifetime.
She can’t believe all that has happened, right in the middle of no-where.


 Price is $15.95 + $.80 Sales Tax =$ $16.70.  If you wish to pay by check please add $3.50 for shipping.  Be sure to let Tim know how it should be autographed.
