The Rangeleys : A photographic journey through an iconic region of Maine
“In this extraordinary book, Ben Pearson has not only captured the beauty of the place, but also a sense of its spirit—of its geography and of the community (there’s that word again) which has grown up in the midst of this special piece of Maine. From the Rangeley’s front door at the Height of Land, to the view from Saddleback, to the sunsets on the lake(s), to the connecting rivers, the loons, moose, and brook trout (which attracted my father there some 70 years ago), and the starry nights, ............it’s all here.” From the foreword by United States Senator Angus King
One of the crown jewels of Maine, the Rangeley region with its 100’s of lakes and ponds, headwaters to clean fast flowing rivers all surrounded by the rugged western Maine mountains has long been beloved by outdoors people of all pursuits.
This book is a unique combination of fine art landscape and “lakescape” photography, interwoven with captivating wildlife photography and short form story telling. It paints a picture of this region with a richness and depth you’d be hard pressed to match without years of travel and exploration. It is soup for the soul where your minds-eye can lose itself in the powerful landscape scenes, accompanied by the primal call of the loon, the wind in the pines, and the lap of gentle waves on a wild shore at sunset.
