Retired game warden writes another novel
NORWAY – Randall Probert, a retired Maine game warden, recently released his newest book, “Trial at Norway Dam,” another historical novel. Situated in T7-R9 near Norway Dam on Matagamon Lake in northern Maine, it is a sequel to his two other books about the Matagamon region.
In “Mysteries at Matagamon Lake,” Probert tells of an old bottle found behind the dam that contains a note (to Sarah) and a map where the writer hide some gold coins he stole. In his new book, Probert develops the character Sarah and others.
He also takes the reader back in time when the vast area between Shin Pond and Matagamon Lake was a busy lumbering community. The reader will relive the history of the old Shin Pond Hotel, Crommett Farm, Hay Brook Farm, Seboeis Farm and Colonel Brown’s Mill at Saddle Pond – mixed in with some of Probert’s experiences as a game warden.
“The first time I saw Norway Dam, it reminded me of fiords in Norway. … to me, it is one of the most beautiful places in the state,” Probert said, adding: “The main character in the book, Percival Spierman, is put on trial for his life there.”
Probert’s books are available at Books N Things on Main
