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.
