Summary

Bustins lies in a quiet corner of inner Casco Bay, just a mile or two offshore from the hustle and bustle of the tourist mecca of Freeport, yet most people know little, if anything, about it. Bustins features more than one hundred homes, some more than a century old, and boasts its own ferry service. Still, it has no electricity, no businesses, and almost no vehicles. Ben Carr, a longtime Bustins summer resident, takes readers from the island's beginnings as a farming community and a stop for fishermen through its days as a year-round community to its transformation into a summer colony with its struggles to remain a summer oasis while adapting to a changing world. He explains what the island means to him and why he considers it, above all, home.
