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.

The distinctly American gospel -- never before published -- of our great nature writer, mystic, ecologist, and prophet.The final harvest of a great writer's last years, Wild Fruits presents Thoreau's sacramental vision of nature--a vision compelling in part because it grew out of an approach to the natural world at once scientific and mystical. The difficulties of Thoreau's handwriting, method of composition, notations, and pagination have kept his final observations and meditations from publication until now; thanks to the assiduous efforts of Thoreau specialist Bradley Dean, this great work can finally be brought to light. Features illustrations by Abigail Rorer. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 230, Winter 2000, p. 3.
