Staff Reviews

No local writer embodies the experience of living in central Maine quite like Bob Kimber. His wry, self-effacing depth, his warmth, his kind, yet penetrating humanity, and his elegant style are everywhere evident in this fine retrospective. Lost But Found makes fresh our own familiar landscapes through Bob’s skilled and knowing writing.


— From The Holiday Twenty

Robert Kimber has led a largely rural life as a farmer, writer, and woodsman. The essays gathered in this wide-ranging collection reflect a lifetime of adventures and misadventures. Kimber writes of canoeing and fishing, stubborn sheep and old tractors, and the joys of roaming the woods with his dog. Seasoned with a dash of wit and self-irony, this paean to the upcountry life is as fresh and bracing as it is affectionate.

Robert Kimber's work has appeared in Adubon, Country Journal, Down East, Field & Stream, Harrowsmith, Horticulture, Yankee, Northern Woodlands, and the Missouri Review. He is the author of the books, Upcountry, A Canoeist's Sketchbook, Made for the Country, and Living Wild and Domestic. He lives in Temple, Maine.
