Moondoggle: Franklin Roosevelt and the Fight for Tidal-Electric Power at Passamaquoddy Bay (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


For 25 years, Franklin Roosevelt tried to build the world's first tidal-electric power plant-by harnessing the Bay of Fundy's giant tides. The enormous project would have dammed-up 110 square miles of coastal Maine and Canada. Moondoggle is a dramatic tale about the appeal of tidal power, the difficulties in realizing its potential, and the engineers and three U.S. Presidents (Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy) who tried to make clean and renewable tidal power a reality. Now on the 100th anniversary of the "Passamaquoddy Project's" conception (1920-2020), Moondoggle-the only book on the project-explores what almost was, and what could be.

Mark C. Borton was the creator, and for 13 years, the publisher of the Embassy Boating Guide series of books covering the east coast of the United States from Maine to Florida. The New York Times said, "Embassy Guide is all that most skippers will want or need to know," and Sail magazine called it, "The ultimate guide in copious content and style." The four volumes have gone through a total of 41 printed editions and have sold more than one quarter of a million copies. Borton also created the Maptech Waterproof Chart series, which now includes 92 titles.
