Maine to Greenland


Exploring the Maritime Far Northeast

William W. Fitzhugh & Wilfred E. Richard


Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world's great geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. For more than three decades, William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard have explored the Northeast's Atlantic corridor and its fascinating history, habitat and culture. The authors' powerful personal essays and Richard's stunning photography transport readers to this vibrant region!

Fully illustrated with 350 full-colour photographs, Maine to Greenland is the first in-depth treatment of the Northeast Atlantic corridor and essential for armchair travellers, locals, tourists, or anyone who has journeyed there. Today, green technology, climate change and the opening of the Arctic Ocean have transformed the Maritime Far Northeast from an icy frontier into a global resource zone and an increasingly integrated international crossroads. In our rapdly converging world, we have much to learn from the Maritime Far Northeast  and how its variety of cultures have adapted rather than changed their environments during the past ten thousand years. Maine to Greenland is not only a complete account of the region's unique culture and environment, but also a timely reminder that amidst the very real consequence of climate change, the inhabitants of the Maritime Far Northeast can show us grounded and sustainable ways of living.
