New Book on State Forests from Wisconsin Historical Society Press
Stories from the forests: Book invites exploration. (Wisconsin State Journal, 5/29/2011)
Excerpt: Nature writer Candice Gaukel Andrews maps out the rich landscapes of Wisconsin's forests in the new book from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press.
"Beyond the Trees" has been a few years in the making, as Gaukel Andrews mapped out Wisconsin's 10 state forests (she counts the northern and southern Kettle Moraines as one) and one national forest and planned her travels through each.
In the book, Gaukel Andrews shares stories, maps, and gorgeous photos (most were taken by her husband, John T. Andrews) that represent each of Wisconsin's forests.
