Join author, ecologist, naturalist, and avid hiker Tom Wessels as he talks about his book "Granite, Fire, and Fog: The Natural and Cultural History of Acadia" on Thursday, June 15 at 7 p.m. In this beautifully illustrated book, Wessels invites readers to investigate the remarkable natural history of Mount Desert Island, along with the unique cultural story it gave rise to. This account of nature, terrain, and human interaction with the landscape will delight those who like to hike these bald summits, ride along the carriage roads, or explore the island’s rugged shoreline. Wessels concludes with a guided tour of one of his favorite hikes, a ten-mile loop that will acquaint the reader with the diverse ecosystems described throughout his book. This talk is co-sponsored by Sherman's Books.
