My boyfriends father likes moxie.I have never tried it but curious about it this past weekend when we picked up some at the store for him. I was asking him about the history of it the next day he show up at our house with the book and a bottle of moxie. He said after I read this I have to try a bottle( I'm slightly afraid too). Such interesting history. Im sure he is heading to the festival next weekend.

Jim Baumer is a Maine-based writer who cares about people and the places that define them. A regional writer with a passion for his home state, Baumer’s first book, "When Towns Had Teams," has become the definitive book about the kind of baseball that was the heart and soul of small town life in the state just after WWII, and for the next three decades, before disappearing.
