Overview

From the snowy peaks of the White Mountains to the sandy beaches of Cape Cod, New England is a region of astonishing beauty and natural diversity that has inspired writers, artists, and travelers for generations. In this volume, acclaimed photographer Stephen Gorman turns his lens upon this most storied corner of the country to present a new and striking portrait of New England in its natural state—the magnificent mountains, endless forests, rushing streams, crystalline lakes, and bold rocky coastline.

Traveling from the windswept summits of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, through the north-woods paradise of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, to the dunes of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket Island, and the Cape Cod National Seashore, Gorman captures in words and pictures a remarkable landscape that has somehow defied change through nearly four centuries of European-American settlement. The result is an intimate and personal portrayal of an enduring natural landscape that is at once rugged and sublime.

Just page after page of the kinds of woodsy, watery, snowy, rocky, leafy scenes we yearn to escape into – and can, thanks to this book, at a moment’s notice.”

                                                                                                       

 

“This book is a treasure that reminds us of our blessings.”
