Enduring Heights

SKU: 9780578192123

The High Peaks of Maine, located in the northern reaches of the Appalachian Mountains, contains ten of Maine’s fourteen peaks above four thousand feet. The region contains thousands of acres of remote, undeveloped wilderness.  Natural resources (forests, waterways, topography, and climate) have always been the catalyst for economic and cultural development here, but ever-growing human encroachment compels us to find a balance between development and conservation. Through their photography, John and Cynthia Orcutt illustrate the irreplaceable beauty and isolation of this rich and storied place. Their goal: to raise our awareness that a place with much to give creates a cause for much to save.
