Maine is known for its beautiful shore along the Atlantic Ocean, where lighthouses, sandy beaches, and fishing villages can be found. Readers will learn why so many people travel to Maine, as they'll read about the inspiring and breath-taking landscape, including its rustic cabins, relaxing resorts, and expansive forests, which cover nearly 90 percent of the state. They'll read about flora and fauna, including the moose, black bear, beaver, bobcat, coyote, and mink. The economy—based on natural resources—is presented as well. Natives are also highlighted, including writers Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, E. B. White, and Stephen King, politicians Dorothea Dix, and Margaret Chase Smith, and inventor L. L. Bean.
