内容简介
Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great - and little acknowledged - geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. The authors' essays and Wilfred Richard's photography documenting their research and personal odysseys of more than three decades provide a dramatic explication of the power of the far northeast concept. We learn about the history, environments, and cultures of the region, and the idea of how small-scale societies have adapted to rather than changed their environments, as people further south tended to do.

The book has a strong message about the impacts of climate change in the north and the need for appropriate technology and adaptation. It promotes understanding about a part of the world--the northwest Atlantic coastal region--that once was well-known to Europeans and Americans, but which sank into obscurity at the close of the great schooner fisheries and WWII, and which now is re-emerging as a result of climate change, the political emergence of Native people, and the opening of the Arctic Ocean.
