Spanning 26 million acres across New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, the Northern Forest is the last remaining wild forest in the East. In Northeastern Wilds, writer and photographer Stephen Gorman leads readers on a stunning visual and literary journey through the Northern Forest's rich heritage, geography, culture, and ongoing environmental change. Traveling by foot, canoe, ski, and snowshoe, Gorman confidently guides readers through the complexities of this working wilderness and the many challenges facing its survival. He explores with an even hand and an open mind such difficult issues as clear-cutting, land development, endangered species reintroduction, and conservation-issues that resonate whether readers live in Maine, Colorado, or California. First-hand insights from such well-known voices as E. Annie Proulx and Bill McKibben, as well as Abenaki leaders, lifelong residents, and paper company executives, highlight the present-day choices, challenges, and opportunities facing the Northern Forest. and A really sweet picture of our own OGE'er Spencer Taylor!
