Thoreau's Maine Woods

The Portland Newspapers and WGME-TV spent three weeks paddling and hiking portions of Thoreau's route, guided by the author's words and ideas. Here, we share with readers, viewers and Internet users what we observed in the woods and along the rivers and lakes that Thoreau described as "the wildest country." -- Henry David Thoreau

Retracing Thoreau's Steps In Photos

Like Thoreau's book "The Maine Woods", this series is divided into three parts, Chesuncook, the Allagash and East Branch, and Ktaadn. In each installment of this website we learn more about Thoreau and more about how the world has changed in the 150 years ago since he trod across the land we call the Maine woods.

Essay by David Rothenburg, published in The Maine Scholar.   "The wild is more than a named place, an area to demarcate. It is a quality that beguiles us, a tendency we both flee and seek. It is the unruly, what won't be kept down, that crazy love, that path that no one advises us to take-it's against the rules, it's too far, too fast, beyond order, irreconcilable with what we are told is right."  

 

The Maine Woods Restoration Project

We are five centuries too late to save the primeval north forests of Maine, but we still have a chance to restore them.  ONCE, a great wilderness, stretching from the Atlantic ocean to the Great Plains. THEN, a region seriously damaged by industrial development. TODAY, a land where wild nature is struggling to return. TOMORROW, America's first restored landscape: a place of vast recovered wilderness, of forests where the wolf and caribou roam free, of clear waters alive with salmon and trout, of people once again living in harmony with nature.
