About the Author:
In person and in print George Barnes comes across as a gentleman of the old school. He is modest when recounting
his experience and accomplishments. George comes from a long line (1731) of yankee freeholders, fishermen and craftsmen
in southern Maine. George is the quintessential multi-skilled "Mainiac".
