"A rich photographic and text exploration of the history, climate, geography, native peoples, and lifestyles along the northwest Atlantic corridor. Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great - and little acknowledged - geographic regions- the Maritime Far Northeast. Will Richard's essays and photography documenting his personal odyssey of more than two decades provide a dramatic explication of the power of the far northeast concept. We learn about the history, environments, and cultures of the region, and the idea of how small-scale societies have adapted to rather than changed their environments, as people further south tended to do. The book has a strong "green" message at the same time that it promotes understanding about a part of the world--the northwest Atlantic coastal region--that once was well-known to Europeans and Americans, but which sank into obscurity at the close of the great schooner fisheries and WWII, and which now is re-emerging as a result of climate change, the political emergence of Native people, and the opening of the Arctic Ocean."

An examination of the geography, history, cultures, and ecosystems of a vast stretch of land from Maine in the south to Greenland and Nunavut in the north. Enlightening, with excellent photography.
