Fantastic books focus on Maine’s north woods and the Penobscot River

When I saw the title — “Canoe and Camera, A Two Hundred Mile Tour As a result of The Maine Forests” — I experienced to get that ebook. And I have to thank Tommy Carbone for re-publishing Thomas Sedgwick Steele’s tale of his journey with two buddies and 3 guides through the Maine woods in 1880.

Which is suitable — his journey was in 1880. And one particular issue we can be quite pleased about is that our north woods has not adjusted substantially given that his journey. It is even now a fantastic place. This ebook brought back a good deal of good memories of my have time in the north woods, mostly searching and fishing. I also preferred the information and facts Carbone added to the e book, and the old photos are truly very good also.

I like this estimate from Steele: “The enjoyment of canoeing these undiscovered lakes and streams, and residing from working day to working day upon their methods, was an ingredient of indescribable delight.”
