In the Northeastern United States lies a swath of forest, mountains, lakes, and rivers so rugged and vast, with a beauty so startling, that its very existence seems incomprehensible to many outside its boundaries. But exist it does. Spanning some twenty-six million acres - across New York's Adirondacks, northern Vermont and New Hampshire, and Maine's North Woods - it is one of the largest remaining wild forests in the East and one of the nation's last great places: the Northern Forest.In Northeastern Wilds, writer and photographer Stephen Gorman travels down raging rapids and over dazzling snow-swept peaks, along solitary trails and across remote glassy lakes, as he takes us on an unforgettable visual and literary adventure into this little-known region's rich history, geography, and culture. Through stunning photography and evocative essays, Gorman reveals the singular and irreplaceable character of the Northern Forest, a place where people work, play, and coexist with nature like nowhere else in this country.More than a story of adventure in a remote land, Northeastern Wilds also guides us through the complexities of this working wilderness and the many challenges facings its survival. Throughout the book, we meet members of the diverse communities who make their living from and in the Northern Forest. Firsthand insights from such well-know voices as E. Annie Proulx and Bill McKibben, mingle with those of Abenaki leaders, paper company executives, and lifelong residents to highlight the present day choices and opportunities facing this wilderness area.The beauty of the Northern Forest is breathtaking, its ability to inspire undeniable. What remains in question is its future - and how in this age of technology and unyielding development we will sustain its wildness for centuries to come.
