Overview

New England is a region of stunning natural beauty, extending from the shores of the Atlantic to the snowy peaks of the White Mountains. New England is dense forestland and sandy beaches, rushing rivers and tranquil lakes, rolling hillsides and rocky cliffs. In Wild New England, Stephen Gorman takes us on a spectacular tour of these wilderness wonders. Focusing on New England’s most significant natural features, he offers an intimate portrait of the region’s great diversity and riches: the rockbound coast of Acadia National Park; the lush forest of Baxter State Park; the mighty rivers of the Allagash Wilderness; the dramatic peaks of the Appalachian Mountains; and the vast beaches of Cape Cod. Gorman’s photographs capture the minute details of the forest floor and the grand vistas of endless mountain ranges. He wades along icy streams, hikes sandy dunes, and scales precipitous peaks to reveal the wilderness landscapes that make up New England. Drawing on the tradition of New England’s pioneering conservationists such as Henry David Thoreau and Percival P. Baxter, Gorman’s Wild New England celebrates the wonders of nature to encourage us all to preserve the spirit and beauty of our land.
