The Trees in My Forest – Bernd Heinrich

a7cfde7a4e1b0b4593049785851434f414f4141I have to admit, half the reason I probably liked this book so much is that it’s talking about the forests of Maine, admittedly a little further from the coast from my usual haunts, but close to where my mother grew up, so I’m very familiar.

This book is basically a love story to a patch of land in the mountains near Rumford, Maine, that the author owns, and has watched change over the years. He’s wandered around the property extensively, and the book has detailed observations of the plants and animals he’s seen. If you want a good flavor for the Maine forest – this book will give you that, with a real sense of love throughout the pages.
