Wilderness Partners

WILDERNESS PARTNERS, by Phyllis Austin, tells the story of Buzz Caverly, who first joined the ranger staff at Baxter State Park in 1960, when the new park was just taking shape under the direction of Helon Taylor and the park’s donor, Percival Baxter, who wished the park to be “forever wild.” Caverly’s legendary career in the park–one of the most unusual wilderness areas in the nation–culminated when he became park director in 1981. Over the years he saw tremendous changes in attitude about land conservation, public access, and park management. From the “Wild West” days of the 1960s to the intensely managed years of the 1990s and beyond, the clash of personalities and politics is entertaining and inspiring, and reveals the minefield of people and issues Buzz had to negotiate to save the park’s wilderness character.
