A WALK IN WISCONSIN’S WOODS
Nature writer Candice Gaukel Andrews weaves together contemporary observations and historical reminisces in “Beyond the Trees: Stories of Wisconsin Forests.” Readers will journey to some of the most pristine and notable places in the Upper Midwest: Wisconsin’s state and national forests.
The diversity of landscapes evoked in “Beyond the Trees” is matched only by the characters who inhabit them. Traverse the footsteps of Ojibwe hunters and early explorers in the remote woods of Brule River State Forest. Trek past the remains of bygone logging and CCC camps in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Glimpse into the world of Great Lakes shipping in Point Beach State Forest.
Walk on trails named after John Muir and Increase Lapham in the Kettle Moraine State Forest, and experience urban green space at Milwaukee’s Havenwoods State Forest. From orchids to oak savannah, beaver to brook trout, and white-tailed deer to timber wolves, discover Wisconsin’s flora and fauna.
Richly illustrated with color photographs by the author’s husband, John T. Andrews, and other professional photographers, “Beyond the Trees” is also an intimate visual portrait of these stunning landscapes. Archival images, informative sidebars, locator maps, and contact information for Wisconsin state and national forests round out this unique book.
