In her early thirties, Louise Dickinson Rich took to the woods of Maine with her 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. First published in 1942, We Took to the Woods became an instant bestseller.
But We Took to the Woods is more than an adventure story, more than a simple nature study; it portrays a cherished dream awakened into full life. Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and humour, it is a book to stir the imagination.
