Wildness Within Wildness Without: Exploring Maine's Thoreau-Wabanaki Trail - Bridget Besaw, Bill McKibben
Our Price: $29.95

Photographer Bridget Besaw provides us with a stunning first book. Its focus is the necessity of protecting and promoting the Maine North Woods, and the Thoreau-Wabanaki Trail, an interconnected series of paddling and hiking routes in northern Maine that were traveled in the 1850s by Henry David Thoreau and his Penobscot guides. The routes he and his guides followed are part of a much larger system of primeval waterways used by Native American peoples for thousands of years before Thoreau's journeys in the 1840s and 1850s and since.
