Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her early thirties, Louise Dickinson Rich took to the woods of Maine with her new husband. They found their livelihood and raised a family in the remote backcountry settlement of Middle Dam, in the Rangeley area. Louise made time after morning chores to write about their lives. We Took to the Woods is an adventure story, but it also portrays a cherished dream awakened into full life. Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and humor, it is a book to stir the imagination. First published in 1942, We Took to the Woods became an instant bestseller.

Review:

"Uncommonly good reading." The New York Times

Review:

"Vivid descriptions, heightened by the author's sense of humor and Yankee philosophy add much charm to the book." Library Journal

Review:

"Will arouse in readers sharp envy of, and warm admiration for, Mrs. Rich, together with a fierce determination to go and do likewise." The New Yorker
