To the Wilderness is the memoir of an outdoorswoman's life in search of the wild. Improvising a canoe route through deep Maine woods, she discovered—a century after Thoreau—not the forest primeval but a commercial forest, B.C. (Before Chainsaw). Later, in the Minnesota-Ontario border waters she found wilderness being loved to death, making the ironic case for management of wild places. Climbing Mount Katahdin in 1947 provided her with a baseline of untrammeled wilderness. But ecstatic moments of union with nature, she discovered, may be inseparable from alienating and even life-threatening encounters. Having grown through innocence to experience, she contemplated the changing attitudes toward the environment in her lifetime and suggested how one person or a nation may live responsibly on the planet.About the Author:
