A battle for control of a spectacular Maine island pits the Family Beal against itself, rich summer homeowners, and the national park service. This historical coming-of-age novel follows generations of the lobstering Beals of Aguahega Island—from the "landing place" of seagoing Native Americans to today's Acadia National Park (in the book called Norumbega National Park). Triumph and loss, dreams and exploitation pursue the Beals as a hidden way of life is exiled to the 21st Century.
