Nature and Renewal


Nature and Renewal

NATURE AND RENEWAL: Wild River Valley & Beyond, by Dean Bennett, is the story of a magnificent wilderness in a relatively unknown valley, circumscribed by high, steep mountains–the White Mountains of Maine and New Hampshire. It is also the story of the valley’s rogue river, Wild River; of a raging wildfire and the disappearance of an entire village community; of both land abuse and land stewardship; of ecological disaster and renewal; of nature’s vulnerability and resiliency; and of people who experienced tragedy and good fortune. Amazingly, through the centuries a single mighty hemlock tree survived to be a living witness to it all. Dean Bennett, who has spent a lifetime exploring the natural world and its human connections, brings to life this surprising story of the power of nature to renew. Illustrated with photographs and maps and Bennett’s beautiful illustrations, NATURE AND RENEWAL has a message for everyone.
