Thoreau Maine Woods A Photographic Journey
An Extraordinary Book
Scot Miller and Levenger Press have given us a remarkable combination of words and photographs to evoke the past and present of the Maine wilderness. The photographs are vintage Miller: beautifully composed and taken, with an extraordinary eye for shots that fit so well with Thoreau's text. Thoreau himself, of course, continues to be a wonder, a keen observer of all around him, large and small, a reminder that what he saw set early Americans off from their European counterparts. Europeans had history; Americans had the land; and no one appreciated that fact more than Henry David Thoreau and, now, Scot Miller. A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness is a journey well worth taking.

I recently purchased a copy of the book for my uncle, who spent many years visiting Maine. He told me, after receiving the book, that the photography truly captured Maine. It is the closest thing to the real Maine that he has seen since he last visited. He loves the book, and has insisted that I purchase a copy for myself. In his words, any self-respecting fan of the Maine region should own a copy.
