Mr. Rockefeller's Roads
Ann Rockefeller Roberts. Mr. Rockefeller's roads: the story behind Acadia's carriage roads
The beautiful carriage roads of Mount Desert Island fit so perfectly into the land it seems as though they have always been there. Actually, they are the result of decades of planning and painstaking effort on the part of philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and were built by local islanders over a 27-year period. Access by cars is not permitted, so the trails remain a boon to walkers, horseback riders, bicyclists, and cross-country skiers.This second edition also includes an interview with David Rockefeller, son of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and an exploration of the history of the roads since the publication of the first edition in 1990. Additional archival photographs and new color photographs of the roads are also included. -- Google Books review
