"Up in smoke, down to rubble, back to weeds: well over a hundred buildings, and with them went an annual tax payment to the town of twelve thousand dollars. There was some sweet-sounding talk about opening a recreation area with a golf course, maybe a marina. Nothing happened. The bed-and breakfasts that flourished in the wide wake of Scaroonís success, the stores that peddled Madras shorts and tennis balls to tourists, the dozen-plus camps that introduced three generations of city and suburban kids to war canoes, tent inspections and símores---all thatís gone now. In ten or twenty years, the undocumented living memories of Scaroon Manor will be gone too."
