Chimney Pond Tales by Clayton Hall and Jane Thomas, with Elizabeth Hall Harmon (Maine)
Assembled by Clayton Hall and Jane Thomas, with Elizabeth Hall Harmon
During the first half of the Twentieth Century, Leroy Dudley, ranger, guide, and spinner of tales at Chimney Pond on Maine's Mount Katahdin, enchanted countless outdoor enthusiasts with his yarns about Pamola, the Penobscot Indian god of thunder who protected the mountain.
Roy's stories were recorded on wax cylinder by Clayton Hall in the 193's. They were ultimately brought to print in 1991 (a long story in itself.) This self-published book has enjoyed amazing success with sales exceeding 10,000 copies.
In celebration of its more than 20 years of print, we offer this new edition, including early photographs of Roy Dudly, Katahdin, and Chimney Pond, a brief history of the book itself, as well as an additional, incomplete Dudley Story for you to finish.
