In 1955, author George James Grinnell was one of five young men who set off with 36-year-old Art Moffatt on a canoe trip through Canada's Arctic. The group was unprepared for the cold. They ran out of food, and winter closed in. Then the group inadvertently went over a waterfall, and Art, their leader, died of hypothermia. Grinnell's first-hand exploration of this three-month canoe trip provides profound insights within the structure of this powerful and unique narrative.
Heron Dance Press and Art Studio, 2006. Revised edition. Paperback, 180 pp.
Join the author on a journey over ancient trails dating back to fur trade days as you paddle and portage your way into remote headwaters. When the trail peters out in tangles of Labrador tea, follow a compass bearing onward through unbroken wilderness to an unnamed lake. You can imagine you are exploring new country in this land of the bear and moose. Yet you know in your heart that sometime in the dim and distant past, your lost lake has seen paddles dipped into its water, snowshoe tracks made upon its frozen surface, or moccasin footprints pressed softly into caribou moss along its shores. As these ancient trails gradualy disappear, a bit of history vanishes along with them. Herein lies the story of at least a few of them, as traveled and photographed by Coffin. Now out of print.

This book offers wise and pointed teachings for helping us to look at fear with immediacy and courage, and to engage with it as a path to transform ourselves -- and the world. Walking this path, we learn to cultivate fearlessness and to connect more deeply with others, and with the natural world.

When Joanna Greenfield was barely in her twenties, she was offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to follow one of the last-known populations of wild chimpanzees in East Africa. Determined to earn her place as a wildlife researcher, she set of from peaceful Kenya into politically hazardous Uganda. From there, a small team of guide led her into the mountains. Here she depicts the contrasting beauty of the savanna and the rain forest, and the determination required to wait for one transcendent encounter in the wild. Eventually she must decide whether it has become too dangerous to stay in the rain forest, even though she knows she may never be allowed to return. This is the true story of one woman's burning mission to connect with animals. It is an adventure story of an against-the-odds quest for a disappearing wilderness few of us have ever glimpsed.

The character of Baxter State Park and the great mountain at its heart can be powerfully conveyed through two words: forever wild. The mountain known as Ktaadn, or "the greatest mountain," was known by native people, colonial adventurers, naturalists, loggers, and recreational climbers and campers. When calls for preservation went unheeded, former governor Percival P. Baxter purchased some 201,000 acres over a period of 30 years and gifted them to the state. This book draws on rich collections of archival images that date back to the 19th century.
