The updated edition of a Maine outdoor classic with new material and photographs brings this book to life once again.
Thomas S. Steele gives us a story of what it was like in 1880 to travel through the Maine woods.
In actuality, if you took this trip today most of the miles would reveal themselves to look the same as seen by Steele. In fact, in some instances, with the disappearance of logging camps and supply depots, the route is more remote than it was during his time.
Since then, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway has been designated and this part of Maine will remain forever wild.This book is part travel memoir, part guide book, and part historical reference.
Those who enjoy camping and canoeing adventures will find this updated and annotated edition a treasure to add to their library.
Read about the Maine North Woods. The Allagash. Moosehead Lake.
