Father Fell Down the Well

  Author:   Kendall Morse    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

Captain Kendall Morse has been telling stories and singing songs since he was knee high to a grasshopper in Machias, Maine. He learned it naturally first from his Great Uncle while growing up on the coast and later on the docks and ships when he worked as a Captain and on stages as he performed across the region and overseas. His latest book, Father Fell Down the Well is a wonderful collection of traditional Downeast stories that he has collected during his career. The Maine native writes with such vibrancy and precision that the classic Maine accent shines through his prose, never detracting but only adding to the book鈥檚 sometimes subtle, sometimes laugh-out-loud humour.
