MPBN: Master Maine Guide, musician adds ‘author’ to resume

Maine guides are something akin to those Alaska wilderness guides we here in the West hear about. They are larger than life and versed in all skills needed for going into the wilderness and – more importantly – coming out of the wilderness.

Every Maine guide I met stood like a giant over all those who were fortunate to be near them. Part of that could have been because I was a child when I was around them.

There were guides in my family and they were giants, too.

Here is a link to a Maine Public Broadcast Network interview with a Maine master guide and musician Randy Spencer who wrote a book, “Where Cool Waters Flow,” that may or may not be of interesting to those of you who wander into the woods from time to time.
