The Maine Thing Quarterly

Explore history and make some of your own in the footsteps and canoe wakes of American writer and naturalist, Henry David Thoreau. During three journeys into Maine, Thoreau kept journals that were published as "The Maine Woods." Today you can explore the same legendary routes, just as a group of intrepid explorers did recently for the 150th anniversary of the book's publication. The outer journey offers canoe trips, whitewater rafting, moose watching and rock climbing in Maine's timeless natural world. And the inner journey, well, that's a transcendental experience that's up to you. So read on about the Maine Woods–past and present–then make plans to spend some quality time in both.
