I read this book when my father owned it, and now in 2011, on the eve of 2012, am finishing reading it out loud to my son, who although a completely modern teenager of the computer era, has remained entranced as i have read this, John Gould's books, and others of a Maine long ago.

John Gould's book on the Golden Road convinced us to see for ourselves, and we traveled up into the woods of Maine for a week 2 years ago.
