An Artist's Eye
from Richmond, Va
My brother has lived and run a design firm in Maine for several decades. Also a photographer, he has captured many exquisite sites through his unique lens. The reason I chose this volume for his Christmas gift was its exquisite and artistic rendering of the Maine landscape. Years ago, I purchased a gift book for my father from your always-wonderful holiday offerings.
Quality of book, pictures, and text make this a perfect gift.
Beautiful Book for the New England Soul
from Rolla, MO
I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my brother who has spent many summer vacations in Maine as well as going to UM for college. Beautiful book, gorgeous photos and a wonderful gift for those missing the East Coast and the majesty of New England.
What spectacular photos and paper quality. This book is a "must have" for anyone who has been to Maine.Your books are what set you apart from other retailers. Please keep them coming!
An Extraordinary Book
Scot Miller and Levenger Press have given us a remarkable combination of words and photographs to evoke the past and present of the Maine wilderness. The photographs are vintage Miller: beautifully composed and taken, with an extraordinary eye for shots that fit so well with Thoreau's text. Thoreau himself, of course, continues to be a wonder, a keen observer of all around him, large and small, a reminder that what he saw set early Americans off from their European counterparts. Europeans had history; Americans had the land; and no one appreciated that fact more than Henry David Thoreau and, now, Scot Miller. A Photographic Journey Through an American Wilderness is a journey well worth taking.
from Greensboro, NC
I recently purchased a copy of the book for my uncle, who spent many years visiting Maine. He told me, after receiving the book, that the photography truly captured Maine. It is the closest thing to the real Maine that he has seen since he last visited. He loves the book, and has insisted that I purchase a copy for myself. In his words, any self-respecting fan of the Maine region should own a copy.
