Overview

"If you live here by choice," Willem Lange writes of the northern New England he's called home for half a century, "you pay your dues, take what you can get, and endure what you have to. It's well worth it." These reminiscences, character sketches, and sometimes heart-rending accounts of life among the ubiquitous pines and unyielding granite shows a deep reverence and an abiding respect for this unique corner of the world.

We meet, for example, Baddy, the crusty timber camp cook whose love of hunting ends the day he witnesses the needless death of a fawn. We experience rites of passage: an old man determined to spend one last night alone in the deep woods; a young man discovering for the first time the indelible beauty of a northern September morning; and Lange's own realization that, "for the first time, I'll be the oldest man in camp, and my son will be carrying most of my pack."
