LINCOLNVILLE — Lincolnville Community Library presents “The Challenge of Wilderness Living: Ranger Tales from Maine” with Maine author and humorist retired Ranger Tim Caverly and his wife, Susan, on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 6:30 p.m.
“Ranger Tim’s power point and storytelling will recount their living along our nation’s premier Wild and Scenic River, the Allagash,” said the Library, in a news release. “Share their adventures as they tour you down the Allagash River.”
Tim Caverly is a Maine author who has written and published twelve books about Maine. He is a member of the New England Outdoor Writers Association, a brother of the Nollesemic Lodge #205 of the Free Masons, and ‘Son of the American Legion’ Post 80 in Millinocket. Tim is a graduate of the University of Maine at Machias.
In 1999 he retired from his position as Regional (Park) Supervisor of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway for Maine’s Department of Conservation. After retirement he worked several years as the Maine Director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. Several of Tim’s short stories have been printed in newspapers, magazines, and outdoor journals. He is a columnist for the outdoor paper The Maine Sportsman and often contributes to the Bangor Daily News.
Tim and his wife, Susan, have presented creative writing lectures at Young Authors Camps, as well as many Maine youth summer programs. Tim’s second book, An Allagash Haunting, was adapted into a stage play and has been performed numerous times. The story was also transcribed into a classic radio program.
By December of 2022, through their “New England Reads” literacy project, Tim, Susan, and Frank Manzo Jr. had provided 328 PowerPoint programs to almost 11,000 students from Maine through to Vermont. In addition, to encourage literacy and learning about New England’s natural world, they have donated over 2273 Allagash Tails books to 227 New England schools. After accompanying his Fire Warden Dad, going on patrol with Baxter Park Ranger Brother Buzz, and his 32 years as a Maine Park Ranger, Tim has lived in all four corners of Maine.
“Readers can be confident that his stories are based on firsthand experiences and knowledge of Maine’s history and landscapes,” said the release.
