by David B. Field

Along Maine's Appalachian TrailMaine native Myron H. Avery recruited friends from Washington,
DC; Maine forest and warden service personnel; guides and sporting
camp operators; and the Civilian Conservation Corps to extend the
Appalachian Trail through Maine, despite questions of whether it would
be possible to carve a trail through the state’s wildlands. Volunteers of
Maine’s Appalachian Trail Club, created by Avery in 1935, have since
maintained the trail, built shelters, relocated more than half of the
original hastily constructed route, and taken on the task of managing the
trail’s protection corridor. Along Maine’s Appalachian Trail illustrates the
rich history of the trail’s rugged mountains and vast forests, which have
provided a livelihood for generations of workers and communities.

David B. Field, retired University of Maine professor of Forest
Resources, has maintained six miles of the Appalachian Trail for 54 years.
He has served as an officer of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club and on
the board of managers of the Appalachian Trail Conference. The images
in Along Maine’s Appalachian Trail come primarily from the MATC
archives, Maine State Library, and the author’s personal files.
