Good publications concentrate on Maine’s north woods and the Penobscot River

When I noticed the title — “Canoe and Digicam, A Two Hundred Mile Tour Via The Maine Forests” — I experienced to get that e-book. And I have to thank Tommy Carbone for re-publishing Thomas Sedgwick Steele’s tale of his journey with two mates and 3 guides by way of the Maine woods in 1880.

Which is right — his journey was in 1880. And a person factor we can be very happy about is that our north woods hasn’t altered substantially because his journey. It’s continue to a excellent place. This book introduced again a great deal of terrific memories of my individual time in the north woods, generally hunting and fishing. I also favored the info Carbone extra to the ebook, and the old photographs are actually fantastic also.

I like this quotation from Steele: “The enjoyment of canoeing these undiscovered lakes and streams, and dwelling from working day to working day on their sources, was an ingredient of indescribable delight.”
