By Ron Joseph
I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Ron as he shared so many wonderful stories about Maine wildlife and much history of the State of Maine. I loved his stories about being in a logging camp with mostly Quebecois loggers and how he nearly lost his life falling through the ice.
He takes the reader on a walk through the woods and back in time with his life as a biologist sharing when he helped tag some bear cubs, helping to save the bald eagle in Maine from DDT, and a number of people stories to bring his life and love of the outdoors alive.
I met Ron Joseph through a number of mutual friends in the Waterville area where I live and have always wanted to sit with him and learn more about the backwoods of Maine which I love so much. I have not had the chance to sit with him and hear his stories, but this book is a great replacement until I do.
