122 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. MAINE. An inspiring photographic journey to New England's oldest and most visited national park. In Wild Acadia, Jerry and Marcy Monkman offer a stunning full-color photographic and prose tribute to the spectacular shorelines, forests, and distinctive granite domes of Maine's awe-inspiring Acadia National Park. The book's opening chapter explores the history of the region from its volcanic beginnings to the time when Native Americans first settled there, the rise of tourism, and the establishment of Acadia National Park. Using historical photos paired with contemporary interpretations of the same scenes, Wild Acadia expertly illustrates how the park has changed during the last 100 years. The other chapters&emdash; "Shorelines, " "Forests, " and "Granite Domes"&emdash; document the spectacular beauty of Acadia while exploring the themes of wilderness, solitude, and overcrowding. In words and pictures, the Monkman's breathtaking work captures the moods and glories of Acadia in all its magnificence: lush, rugged, delicate, vital. With gorgeous panoramic views and close-ups of entrancing details, the authors validate the honor bestowed on them by the Northern Forest Alliance for "vision and excellence in chronicling the story of the Northern Forest." Jerry and Marcy Monkman are professional outdoor photographers and writers whose work has appeared in numerous books, calendars, and magazines, including Outdoor Photographer, National Geographic, Adventure, Yankee, Outside, the Washington Post, and Down East. They are the authors of White Mountain Wilderness (UPNE, 2005), The Colors of Fall, and adventure guidebooks to Acadia National Park, Southern New Hampshire, and the White Mountains. "The rich images&emdash; from a macroscopic detail of lichen to a bird's-eye view of the rugged coastline&emdash; show us that the park is much, much more than a network of carriage roads on Mount Desert Island."&emdash; Yankee (Key Words: Acadia National Park, Jerry Monkman, Marcy Monkman, National Parks, New England, Maine, Nature).
