Meet Henry David Thoreau, U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and other intrepid explorers as you travel northern Maine's rugged woods and waters. In a wild country of ledge and trees that stubbornly resists encroaching civilization, find a young couple padding through the trials, triumphs, and sheer mental and physical exhaustion of wilderness travel severely testing their ability to get along and even complete the trip. Fill your ears with roaring rapids and yodeling loons. Smell pungent spruce and dank swamps. Encounter moose and majestic sunrises cloaked in morning mist. A few pages, and you will find yourself deep in the evergreen forest.

Since its founding four hundred years ago, New England has been a vital source of nature writing. Maybe it’s the diversity of landscapes huddled so close together or the marriage of nature and culture in a relatively small, six-state region. Maybe it’s the regenerative powers of the ecosystem in a place of repeated exploitations. Or maybe we have simply been thinking about our relationship with the natural world longer than everyone. If all successive nature writing is a footnote to Henry David Thoreau, then New England has a strong claim to being the birthplace of the genre. But there are, as the sixty entries in this anthology demonstrate, many other regional voices that extol the wonders and beauty of the outdoors, explore local ecology, and call for environmental sustainability. Between these covers, Noah Webster calls for our stewardship of nature and Lydia Sigourney finds sublime pleasure in it. Jonathan Edwards and Helen Keller both find miracles, while Samuel Peters and Mark Twain find humor. Author Nathaniel Hawthorne discovers a place to hide his metaphors, while the enslaved James Mars discovers an actual hiding place. Through it all is the apprehension of a profound and lasting splendor, “the glory of physical nature,” as W.E.B. Dubois calls it, something beyond our everyday concerns and yet tied so closely to our daily lives that we cannot escape it. Nature writing cultivates our sense of beauty, inflaming curiosity and the passion to explore. It opens us to deep, primal experiences that enrich life. Anyone wanting to understand our relationship with the world must start here.

“Waterman’s mesmerizing account of her intense but unusual and tragic marriage to noted climber and wilderness advocate Guy Waterman.” —Stowe Today.com Laura and Guy Waterman spent nearly three decades homesteading in a cabin in the Vermont mountains. But the end of their marriage came on a frigid day, February 6, 2000, when Guy climbed to the summit of Mount Lafayette in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and sat down among the rocks to die. Losing the Garden is the memoir of a woman who was compelled to ask herself “How could I support my husband’s plan to commit suicide?” In her intimate examination, we explore their intricate and dark family histories and reach a deep understanding of the marriage that tried to transcend them. At its heart, this is a love story and an affirmation of life after loss. “In the enigmatic Losing the Garden: The Story of a Marriage, Waterman tells with astonishing frankness the wrenching story of her marriage and widowhood.” —Chicago Tribune “A compelling memoir demands a precarious dance between the universal and the unusual . . . The result is a very slow waltz during which the dancers hardly touch.” —The Boston Globe (Editor’s Pick) “This is a survivor’s tale of an unusual life and a loving marriage. Waterman’s well-written and heartfelt book will resonate with anyone whose life has been touched by the suicide of a loved one.” —Library Journal

NOTE: THE REVIEW PERIOD HAS ENDED. Stay tuned for the final 2018 edition of Storied Lands & Waters. An interpretive plan for Allagash Wilderness Waterway, located in northern Maine, articulates a purpose and thematic framework for communicating messages about "the Allagash." Recommended actions address management's goals; respond to inherent possibilities and constraints; build on current efforts; take advantage of interpretive opportunities; and identifiy audiences. The plan proposes actions and resources for educators. A heritage resource assessment identifies properties and objects associated with the Waterway in seven cultural and historic resource categories. Proposed management actions help carry out provisions of Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands strategic and management plans, consistent with Bureau policy and best management practices. In general, policy requires managers to "protect, monitor, and treat" historic and cultural resources under their care. A free PDF, full-color copy of the report is be available (allagash.brucejacobson.com). The interior of the printed version is black and white; be aware that some images may appear pixelated or slightly blurry. The Storied Lands & Waters project is sponsored by the nonprofit Allagash Wilderness Waterway Foundation. www.awwf.org
