“Enduring Heights” features photographs by John and Cynthia Orcutt of the natural environment of Maine’s High Peaks, including the areas surrounding Sugarloaf, Bigelow, Crocker, Mt. Abraham and Saddleback mountains. The hardcover book is 12? x 12? in size, 132 pages with maps, several essays and over 90 color plates. The Foreword is written by Angus King, US Senator from Maine and there is an essay on conservation in the High Peaks by Wolfe Tone, former Director of The Trust for Public Land in Maine.
The book publication was partially funded by the Kibby Wind TIF (Trans Canada) – a TIF program organized to promote economic development in the Unorganized Townships (UTs) in Franklin County. Part of the TIF program involved donating copies of the books to the non-profit organizations that promote and conserve the High Peaks area, including the UTs. These groups include Trust for Public Land, Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, Franklin County Development Corp, Maine’s High Peaks Business Association, Sandy River Business Association, Rangeley Lakes Chamber of Commerce, Maine Huts & Trails, The High Peaks Alliance, and The Maine Appalachian Trail Club.
The Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust is fortunate to also have received copies of this book, which is already generating considerable interest. Senator King showed up for a signing event last week!
