The Adventures of the Bait Barrel Kids & Other Maine Tales is a collection of stories by Gary Anderson, retired Safety Officer for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife (IF&W). Many stories are tales of the author's boyhood in an isolated, rural Maine fishing community during the 1940's & '50's. Others are based on the many and varied colorful characters he met while serving with IF&W and the US. Coast Guard.
