East to Katahdin: Adventures in the American Wilderness (Paperback)
One of several books written by Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, East to Katahdin is a fascinating excursion through the primitive natural areas of America, finishing in Maine. When Douglas writes of a blizzard, readers can feel the sting of snow and sleet. When he observes the tiniest flower species among a thousand others, it is with tenderness and understanding, and when he sees a wild animal, readers are at his side observing every nuance. This is a remarkable blending of scientific information, the excitement of the trail, and a philosophical understanding of the intricate patterns of nature.
