About the title of this book: On the Schooner Mary Day out of Camden, Maine, and at The Trailing Yew on Monhegan Island, 12 miles off the coast of Maine, a bell is rung, vigorously, to announce the beginning of each meal. These hearty meals, greatly appreciated by those with appetites whetted by the fresh, salty, air, are served family style, one seating; or sometimes two or three seatings at “The Yew.”
