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.

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.
