What People are Saying About This

Pete Seeger

"Helen Knothe Nearing was one of the great people of the 20th Century. Her Maple Sugar Book got me started sugaring. Helen's husband was remarkable too, but got most of the publicity. Helen was 'just' his wife. Now her story is told. Read it, women all over the world."
Pete Seeger, songwriter
