To the simple-living, home-loving people I meet and enjoy to be with; to the animals I know and pet and pat, and am rubbed and nosed by; to the birds that sing for me and with me; to the trees and flowers that give me of their balm and fragrance and inspire me; and to good old Maine, with her lakes and streams, hills and valleys, fresh air, blue skies, and sunshine, I affectionately dedicate what is between these covers.
