Working The Woods




In sections arranged by birch, oak, spruce, and more, “Working the Woods” tells the story of the Northern Forest in Maine through the lives of 21 workers in the woods: basket makers, canoe builders, guides, hunters, loggers, poets, tinkerers, wood carvers, and more. The artists range throughout the state of Maine, from Ashland and Presque Isle in the north to Rangeley and Paris in the west and east to Montville and Old Town, and beyond.

By Margaret Yocom and Kathleen Mundell, with Peggy McKenna. Features photographs by Cedric Chatterley, Jere de Waters, Melville McLean, Peggy McKenna, and Margaret Yocom. All proceeds go to the work of the Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum. Design by Amy Fischer, Camden, Maine. Cover art by Margaret Rizzio.

“It’s not you that handles the wood, it’s the wood that leads you.” Wolf Sanipass, wood carver.
“Working the Woods” book $3.00
