Notes From dust jacket.....This book is about a kind of wilderness that is at once strange and familiar--the kind that fails to satisfy the classic criteria of size, remoteness and roadlessness, the kind that some of us see every day. This is a gentle reminder that what served as salvation for Concord in Thoreau's day is to be cherished no less in our own and guarded more jealously. Book includes 43 color photographs by Marvin Mort, and an essay by Charles E. Little. Book is near fine (clean, straight & tight) in a very good dust jacket (clean, bright, price clipped with some edge wear/chipping and a couple of small edge tears). A beautifully illustrated book. ; Color Photographs; 12 x 10.5 inches; 122 pages
