Overview

Stephen Gorman’s stunning full-color photographs harmonize with selections from the classic writings of Henry David Thoreau, one of America’s most original thinkers and a perennially inspiring nature writer. A century and a half ago Thoreau first entered the Maine woods and found freedom in a wild realm “far from mankind and election day!”Traveling in the footsteps of this now-legendary author, Stephen Gorman brings a fresh eye and a keen sense of humanity’s place in nature to the far reaches of untamed New England. Whether it is the stormclouded summit of Mount Katahdin, or Cape Cod—where towering sand dunes and open ocean collide—Thoreau’s words resonate across the centuries and come to life again in Gorman’s images of New England’s bewitching and priceless natural heritage. This beautiful volume stands as testimony to the enduring beauty and power of wild New England.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[A] book for all seasons, Thoreau's New England, depicts an adventurer's New England, from gray frozen peaks to silvered ponds to aquamarine waves washing over blue-tinged sand under an azure sky.”—Concord Monitor

"[A] book for all seasons, Thoreau's New England, depicts an adventurer's New England, from gray frozen peaks to silvered ponds to aquamarine waves washing over blue-tinged sand under an azure sky. The quotations range from a spare sentence to a fat paragraph, nothing too heavy, but always something to make you think,especially when paired with one of Gorman's colorful photographs. He pairs "Give me a Wildness whose glance no civilization can endure ..." with a sunset over a pond the sky so many shades of pink, orange and yellow, the trees so dark, the pond so red, it'll take your breath away." —Concord Monitor

What People are Saying About This

Dan Brown
"Steve Gorman is a true American visionary. His masterful images are beautiful and sometimes disturbing, but they offer tantalizing clues into the nature of our national character and our capricious relationship to the natural world. His work deftly inscribes our beliefs, our dreams, and our American story in an accessible and eye-opening way."
Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code
