Maine is a place that inspires lifelong devotion in visitors and residents alike. It is a place that encompasses many worlds within its boundaries--mountains and lakes, rivers and forests, a dramatic coastline--and supports a unique way of life influenced by both geography and climate. Maine: The Seasons captures the rugged beauty and spirit of Maine by taking us into its very heart, through images and words.
Featuring 127 color photographs by acclaimed landscape photographer Terrell S. Lester, and original essays by four celebrated writers--Elizabeth Strout on spring, Ann Beattie on summer, Richard Russo on autumn, and Richard Ford on winter--Maine: The Seasons gives us a richly evocative, visually glorious appreciation of the look, the feeling, the essence, of Maine.
