Summary
Collection contains "Ballad of Buster," a short film based on an event which took place on the Maine coast. According to the donor, "Buster Estes was a Harpswell fisherman who took two young boys duck hunting in winter on a half tide ledge. Something happened to the skiff which had taken them from the lobster boat, anchored off-shore, to the ledge, and the man and two boys were left stranded on the ledge in the on-coming tide and in the face of a building snow storm."
Biographical/Historical Notes
Nancy Pulsifer lives in Rockland, Maine. The film was used in an educational package for schools, "Buster, A Synthesis of Environmental Art," describing art forms created in response to the experience of the Maine coast. Larry Hall, a Bowdoin College professor, wrote a short story, "The Ledge," based on this tragic event.
