Maine is a place that inspires lifelong devotion in visitors and residents alike. It is a place that encompasses many worlds within its boundaries--mountains and lakes, rivers and forests, a dramatic coastline--and supports a unique way of life influenced by both geography and climate. Maine: The Seasons
captures the rugged beauty and spirit of Maine by taking us into its very heart, through images and words.
Featuring 127 color photographs by acclaimed landscape photographer Terrell S. Lester, and original essays by four celebrated writers--Elizabeth Strout on spring, Ann Beattie on summer, Richard Russo on autumn, and Richard Ford on winter--Maine: The Seasons
gives us a richly evocative, visually glorious appreciation of the look, the feeling, the essence, of Maine.
"A lovely book! The photos and essays capture all the natural beauty as well as the soul of Maine."--William S. Cohen
"This truly lovely book captures both the beauty of Maine and the extraordinary talent of the photographer. The accompanying essays are also illustrative of just how inspiring Maine can be."–Senator Susan M. Collins
"Terrell Lester has taken a delightful stroll through Maine's diverse seasons–and with his images acquaints readers with our beautiful state. Maine: The Seasons deserves a place on the bookshelves of armchair travelers and residents near and far–as well as anyone inspired by the beautiful landscapes and lakes, mountains and coastline of northern New England."–Senator Olympia J.
