The table of contents from the February 1982 issue of Down East.


North Woods Honeymoon

When two Maine guides married, they waited until freeze-up before striking off on their wilderness wedding trip. By Helen N. Barnes.

Hearty Chowders

Ingredients range from corn and shrimp to shellfish. But the hands-down favorite is fish chowder. By Tracy Lord.

Shipboard Medicine in the Age of Sail

It did little to ease the hard lot of the seafaring man. By Charles E. Burden, M.D.

Letting Daylight into the Swamp at 22° Below

Despite machinery, logging Maine’s big timber is every bit as arduous — and dangerous — as it was more than a century ago. By Marty Brown.

Wintering Over on Monhegan

One of the island’s few year-round painters, Andrew Winter was an artist for all seasons, as a new exhibit shows. By Davis Thomas.


Room With A View

Nothing is perfect, though, and I must point out that already the statue of The Maine Lobsterman is a little out of date. The statue shows the lobsterman pegging the claw of the lobster, a job that in recent years has given way to banding. By Caskie Stinnett.
