Hiking routes let you explore the same areas of MA, NH, and ME that Thoreau explored.
This is the essential guide for modern-day walkers and hikers eager to retrace Thoreau’s routes on New England’s peaks. Insights about Thoreau’s mountain journeys, excerpts from his trip narratives, detailed topographical maps, and precise trail directions pave the way―figuratively―for hikers who want to cover the same ground that Thoreau explored in the mid-19th century. With this inventive guide in hand, history and literature buffs and outdoors enthusiasts alike can enjoy a dozen hikes and at least as many stories of what the trails were like in Thoreau’s day.
Thoreau was drawn to these high places because they are the natural world amplified, the world thrust upward. Not to go there was unthinkable. “We must go out and re-ally ourselves to Nature every day,” he wrote in 1856. “I am sensible that I am imbibing health when I open my mouth to the wind...Alone in distant woods or fields, I come to myself, I once more feel myself grandly related, and that cold and solitude are friends of mine.”
John Gibson is the author of several books, including Explorer’s Guides 50 Hikes in Coastal and Southern Maine and Weekend Walks along the New England Coast (both Countryman). He lives in Hallowell, ME.B&W maps and illustrations throughout
Semon had ambition, though, and in the mid 1920s he worked with the son of the late L. Frank Baum, to bring Baum's Wizard of Oz series to the big screen. A huge flop at the box office -- it more or less ruined Semon's career -- it is nevertheless fascinating. Still, there are moments -- particularly at the beginning of the film -- that feature talented slapstick comedy. Yet, in this film are Semon, of course, big fat slapstick veteran Frank Alexander, a very young Oliver Hardy and Semon's very pretty wife, Dorothy Dwan. Here's the film in a few paragraphs: We start in Oz, where Prince Kynd (Bryant Washburn) and the citizens are upset with corrupt leaders, including Prime Minister Kruel. The bad leaders consult the Wizard, a con man, who suggests they bring the lost Princess Dorothy back. We cut now to Kansas, where the womanly Dorothy (Dwan) lives with Aunt Em, (Mary Carr) a limp dishrag of a woman, and Uncle Henry (Alexander) a big, fat domestic abuser. Competing for Dorothy's love are farmhands Semon and Hardy. Be advised the film is very racist and the character, played by actor Spencer Bell, is billed as "G. Howe Black. " (Later in the film, Semon's character lets loose with a tasteless racist jab at Bell's character) Ths racism was unfortunately the norm for those times. The film meanders on coherently while the characters are in Kansas. It's cliche-ridden, but there are talented, physical slapstick gags with Semon, Hardy and Alexander. But once the main characters are blown to Oz in a shack it loses all sense. It gets worse: Semon turns into the Scarecrow, Hardy the Tin Man and Bell the cowardly lion, but they really aren't these characters. Alexander briefly turns into a good guy, then reverts to being a bad guy. Incomprehensibly, Hardy's Tin Man turns bad too. Finally, Dwan's Dorothy more or less disappears from the film, becomes betrothed to Prince Kynd, and wants to see Semon's Scarecrow done away with, too. In fact, the film degenerates into a series of bad slapstick gags designed to showcase Semon trying to outwit the Oz folk who want to capture him. By then it's really no longer Baum's Wizard of Oz. It's just an overlong, badly paced Semon slapstick show. Semon's career was harmed. He puttered around in films for a few more years, then died young. For a long time this film was.
