Item description for Northeastern Wilds: Journeys of Discovery in the Northern Forest by Stephen Gorman...
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. Northeastern Wilds is a breathtaking visual testament to the importance of this Eastern wilderness and the power of landscape in our lives.

Beautiful journey through New England forests Dec 12, 2002
The Northern Forest is an area of twenty-six million acres that stretches from Adirondack Park in New York through Vermont, New Hampshire, and most of Maine. "Northern Wilds: Journeys of Discovery in the Northern Forest" consists of historical information about this area as well as the author's personal experiences. The author provides detailed descriptions and commentary of the various facets of the Forest. These descriptions include what one might expect while hiking in the area in different seasons, canoeing the rivers, or camping as well as how the area is changing due to development, logging, and other ecological factors.
Filled with stunningly beautiful photographs, it made me want to visit the Northern Forest at my first opportunity. A recommended read, but worth the price just for the pleasure of enjoying the photography.
