Chapter 9, page 258-260.

In the late 1800s large numbers of recreational sportsmen began coming to the state to experience hunting, fishing and camping in the Maine woods.

One frequent visitor was John W.G. Dunn of Philadephia and later St. Paul, Minnesota, who visited the Ragged Lake area from about 1890-1904.

He kept logs of his yearly visits in which he recorded his hunting and fishing successes and other activities.
