If one element could best define the character of the North Woods it would be the dramatic cycle of the seasons. Together with essays from John Bates, Terry Daulton, Justin Isherwood and Chad McGrath, Jeff Richter’s photographs beautifully capture this stunning turn of the annual wheel. Some reveal the soft emerging life of springtime, others the extreme landscapes of winter ice. The palette of autumn colors belies the dense, humid greens of the summer forest.  This volume is an eye-opener for those whose visits have been limited to the seasons of sailboats and beaches, Leinenkugel’s and brats and those long, long summer days in the northern reaches.
