Their new book “Facts and Fancy”: is an edifying opus that provides practical information and history of Acadia to visitors and inhabitants alike.

Authors Ivey and Lee emphasizes on rehabilitating and preserving the beauty of nature, as well as the richness of history and culture for future generations to enjoy and learn from: “In 1908, Eliza Homans, a woman from Boston who summered on MDI, became the first donor of land that would become Acadia National Park. She donated one hundred forty acres on Beehive Mountain, including a glacial cirque known today as The Bowl. It was the first donation to the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations and the second land trust in the nation. There is a memorial trail dedicated to her, in the vicinity of Sieur de Monts Springs.”
