Thomas Sedgwick Steele gives us a story of what it was like in 1880 to travel along the waterways from Moosehead Lake to the Aroostook River in the Maine North Woods.
In this part adventure story, part memoir, Steele includes stories of their time on the water, in camp, and descriptions of those they met along the way.
The book includes photographs taken during the trip, which would have been a complicated affair with camera equipment of the 1880s, given the water, the rapids, and the portages.
This new annotated edition is differentiated with updated history, new facts about the north woods, and includes recent photos.
The book will be a grand addition to any reader who enjoys the outdoors and descriptions of wildlife and camping stories.
