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—“Shorelines,” “Forests,” and “Granite Domes”—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.”
