Buggies were bumped by the auto and the Gibson Girl made fashion waves that reached even to Glenduen’s home at New England’s northern tip. Glenduen’s lens and paint brush captures the peace and optimism of her era, when as statesman Harold Macmillan once observed, people believed “everything would get better and better.” Over 70 images, most of them never before made public, as well as related archives and interviews, provide intriguing footnotes to this region’s history—the rescue of a Revolutionary soldier’s grave and those of other early settlers in a Canadian border hamlet- the Adventist movement that spread north after the “Great Disappointment,” when the world’s end failed to arrive as predicted by William Miller- and tales of frontiersmen that bring to mind the likes of Daniel Boone and James Fenimore Cooper’s Hawkeye.

So, readers, leave behind the stress of the 21st century—shut off the cell phone, push away from the computer and take an armchair trip back into Glenduen’s “Turn of the Twentieth Century” world.
