Book summary

From dust jacket notes: "Told with compelling text and awe-inspiring photographs that capture Mount Desert Island's varied seasons and diverse natural beauty, the story of Acadia National Park unfolds in this volume, co-published by Friends of Acadia. Infused with 'Down East' humor, lore, and heart, the tale chronicles the author's lifelong relationship with Acadia, the first national park east of the Mississippi. Along with the park's establishment, threats to its integrity, and ultimate preservation, the book also discusses the island's natural and human history. The photographer's extensive work throughout the island over many years paints a rich picture of life in this land of 'first light' - where dawn's first rays seasonally warm the American coastline. Through the words and images in this book, we see Acadia as not only a place to cherish, but a legacy to protect." [via]
