"If the Wisconsin could tell its own great story, it could not do so with more warmth, knowledge, and enthusiasm than August Derleth has done here. "Always one of the most important passages between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi, the Wisconsin has known explorers, settlers, traders and empire builders, bitter fights and great accomplishments. Its history has been turbulent and exciting, different from that of other parts of the country, but American to the core. "Back and forth over the Wisconsin went Astor's men tobuild the fabulous fur trade, and later the Wisconsin carried the timber t hat built the great western states. Along the vast movements of history that have marched along its banks the river has seen men who have had their share in shaping the mind of the United States. "Physically, August Derleth is a big man, and he has explored the reaches of the Wisconsin by canoe and on foot. He knows it as few men know any river; and he writes as you would expect him to, with strength and vigor. The Wisconsin is a hisky book." from the dj [not present with this copy]. Contents: Part I.

It was my desire, therefore, to make a pedestrian tour through portions of the beautiful country of Kent; and my admiratino of the genius of one of the greatest novelists of any age led me to suggesst a visit to the numerous localities associated with incidents in Dickens's inimitable and immortal works." - from pp. 3-4.

DIETZ, Lew. The Allagash. Illustrated by George Low. New York, Chicago & San Francisco : Holt, Rinehart and Winston, (1968). First Edition. Pp (8),ix-xiv,(2),3-354. Illustrated. 8vo, green cloth. A volume in the Rivers of America series. Fitzgerald, The Rivers of America: A Descriptive Bibliography,A1. "In the heart of Maine's North Country the Allagash River flows northw ard a hundred miles through uplands of unbroken forest. A region as well asa river, the Allagash's vast watershed forms the center of the wild land t hat blankets northwestern Maine. Because of its remoteness, these half-million acres, once the hunting ground of the Abnaki, remain a woddsman's worldof paddle and portage, of wild trout and night-crying loon. Its story is e ngagingly told by Lew Dietz in this fine addition to the Rivers of America series. "With the coming of the white man. the Alalgash wildreness was despoiled of its white pine - essential as masts for sailing ships - but the very greed of the landowning lumbermen in a way protected the river. They prevented homesteading so that they would have free access to the river, and even indulged in private wars with Canada to prevent poaching, trespass cutting, and dynamiting of dams. For the Canadians wanted lumber to flow north like the river and use their outlets to the sea. Maine lumbermen, with dogged determination and a series of dams, got the lumber to Bangor instead. "The Allagash story is colorful, with its loggers, poachers, inventors who tried to lick the wilderness - despoilers all. But there were also the wilderness lovers like Henry David Thoreau, whose Maine Woods journals brought endless campers to the Allagash; the game wardens who, at cost to their lives, protected the wildlife; the guides, the map makers, and the naturalists who covered the country foot by foot. "And finally there are the conservationists who in 1966 made the Allagash a 'wilderness river' by law and gave toMaine the honor being the first state in the union to take positive steps in the preservation of its natural heritage by sdaving an entire river. "A skillful writer of history and naturtal history alike, Lew Dietz evokes through his love of the out-of-doors the sights, sounds, and smells of the river, its great stands of evergreen, its animal dwellers. With equal skill hedelineates the men who, in their various ways, made the Allagash what it i s. A native of Rockport, Maine, Mr Dietz has explored the Allagash country by foot and canoe." - from the dustjacket. Contents : Foreword by Senator Edmund S. Muskie (pp.xiii,-xiv). Part I. 1. The River; 2. In the Beginning; 3. Children of the Myths; 4. The Strangers; 5. The People of the White Rocks. Part II. 6. The Curtain Rises; 7. Dreamer and Map Maker [Moses Greenleaf]; 8.
