About this Item

251, [9] pages. Illustrations. Inscribed on half-title page. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Minor pencil erasure residue on first page. Anne LaBastille (November 20, 1933 - July 1, 2011) was an American author, ecologist, and photographer. She was the author of more than a dozen books, including Woodswoman, Beyond Black Bear Lake, and Women of the Wilderness. She also wrote over 150 articles and over 25 scientific papers. She was honored by the World Wildlife Fund and the Explorers Club for her pioneering work in wildlife ecology in the United States and Guatemala. LaBastille also took many wildlife photographs, many of which were published in nature publications. Taking a page from Thoreau's Walden Pond, this young woman builds a cabin on a small lake and explores the area with her two German shepherds, on foot and by canoe. Autobiographical sequel to The Woodswoman; set in New York State Adirondack Mountains. LaBastille was at this writing a wildlife ecologist, NYS guide, a doctorate holder from Cornell, a consultant, a commissioner of the Adirondack Park Agency, and more, nationally. Her story is one of advocacy for the wilderness. In her second book in the Woodswoman series, Beyond Black Bear Lake (1987), she described how she built her smaller second cabin, Thoreau II, on a more remote area of her property in order to obtain a more Walden-like experience. Both the first and second books explored her friendships, romances, her previous marriage, her close bonds to her German Shepherd dogs, the ebb and flow of nature, and her conservation efforts.

About this title


After her bestselling book, Woodswoman, Anne LaBastille retreated even farther into the wilderness and built a tiny cabin fashioned after Thoreau's Walden. Her renewed bond with nature makes for another "eloquent, witty, and inspirational volume."--Booklist.

From Library Journal:

In the mid-70s, a young field biologist with a Ph.D. in wildlife ecology built her own cabin in the Adirondacks and in her sensitive account, Woodswoman ( LJ 5/1/76), discussed the virtues of living alone in the woods as compared with the stresses of city life. Before long, "civilization" had intruded and LaBastille moved deeper into the woods. In her new book she decribes the building of a second cabin, Thoreau II, at a cost of $138.38, and includes chapters on nature and environmental concerns, particularly the ravages of acid rain. Her eloquent message is straightforward and inspiring and echoes that of Thoreau himself"In wildness is the preservation of the world." Highly recommended for most libraries.
