"The island management area, about 1,755 acres in size, is located in the Kennebec River between the towns of Richmond and Dresden. It includes Swan Island, Little Swan Island, and several hundred acres of tidal flats.
Swan Island, known for its abundant and often quite visible wildlife (especially nesting bald eagles, white-tailed deer and wild turkey), is actually an abandoned 18th and 19th century town called Perkins Township, and has long been recognized for its varied and interesting history. It was used by Native American tribes, early explorers, and settlers, and was reportedly visited by American historical figures such as Aaron Burr and Benedict Arnold."

"A simple time. A simpler life. And simply wonderful food. The recipes and stories in At Home, At Sea recreate life on a Maine Windjammer: a week in a different world, a different century, with homemade, old-world food cooked with fire and passion. In these pages you’ll find memories of the Age of Sail -- the gleam of brass, the sound of the wind in the rigging, and the delicious smells of Maine cooking -- baked breads from the woodstove, steamed lobster, hearty stews, and mouthwatering desserts -- all from the galley of the Schooner J&E Riggin. Chef Anne Mahle started as a mess cook on one of the windjammers and quickly developed a passion for cooking. She has spend the last 15 years working and learning, graduating from mess cook to head cook on the windjammers to private chef on a Caribbean yacht. She further developed her skills as sous chef to classically trained Swiss chef Hans Bucher and at The Culinary Institute of America. She currently owns and operates the J&E Riggin with her husband, Captain Jon Finger."
