Anne LaBastille wrote her best-selling book Woodswoman about the peace and solitude she found in the log cabin she built at Black Bear Lake. Eventually, however, the outside world intruded. Woodswoman II is the equally engrossing story of the author's decision to build a tiny cabin retreat fashioned after Thoreau's Walden, of her life with two German shepherds as companions, and of her renewed bond with nature. Originally published under the title Beyond Black Bear Lake. Over 200,000 copies of the Woodswoman series have been sold.

In 1976, Anne LaBastille, a young ecologist built her own log cabin at the edge of wilderness in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. She has lived there without electricity or a road for 30 years. Her first book, WOODSWOMAN, related encounters with wildlife, weather, & local folk over ten years. The sequel, BEYOND BLACK BEAR LAKE, described her building a new retreat for writing, "Thoreau II," closer to the wilderness. WOODSWOMAN III tells how Anne & her German shepherds encounter a perilous tornado, the joys of guiding, the sad passing of her noble dog, Condor, new environmental controversies & terrorism, the haunting beauty of the Adirondack Mountains, & the challenge of becoming an older woodswoman. She offers a strong inspirational message to women over 50 to become "fierce eco-feminists" & save our planet. In this third decade, Anne's writing is delightfully spunky & sensitive. WOODSWOMAN III is dynamite! Available May 1997 from West of the Wind Publications, Inc., R.D. 2, Westport, NY 12993. Phone & FAX: 518-962-8295.

Between the time Louise Dickinson gave up wanting to be a brakeman on a freight train and definitely decided to become an English teacher, she would say when asked what she was going to do with her life that she was going to live alone in a cabin in the Maine woods and write. Years later when she received a letter from a friend exclaiming, "Isn't it wonderful that you're at last doing what you always wanted, " she realized with a start that she was living her old dream. "We Took To The Woods" is more than an adventure story, more than simple nature study; it portrays a cherished dream awakened into full life. Written with warmth and enthusiasm and great charm, it is a book to stir the imagination of every reader and kindle his heart with envy.

Tea with the Midnight Muse is a collection of poems, rants & prayers written over the span of twenty years to Shiloh Sophia's global community as 'Red Thread Letters.' She considers these writings 'medicine for the soul' as she speaks from her own experience as well as the story of the collective feminine. "This work is an invitation to take a deep dive into the uncharted territory of the Muse as an access point to your own creative fire. Here you discover the sweetness where suffering and joy meet, and ask one another to dance in the mystery". Part One features over 55 inspirational invocations followed by creative practices which each include inquiries, teachings, and mini-guided journeys. You are led across an alchemical bridge into a secret room of your own. Here you may encounter your own Muse and see what wants to be revealed. The content is designed to awaken and catalyze the reader to choose themselves, their lives, their own creative soul and dive in to what's possible. Part Two features another series of writings, a personal encounter with Shiloh Sophia's wild-hearted Muse who lures her with peanut butter, chocolate and leopard print lingerie, as well as introduces you to the characters in her life, both the dark and light figures which have shaped her into who she is. This is a call to transcend the old stories and patterns and step into a new framework. "The Muse shows us what we did not see only moments before, that which is peeking out just behind the veil of consciousness and beckons us to the unknown." So get a cup of tea, light a candle, a journal and some colored pens and let's dive in to Tea with the Midnight Muse. You never know what might be revealed. Proceed with caution, contents may have shifted during flight....

Every day some species of plant or animal on our planet becomes extinct. In Mama Poc, the bestselling author of Woodswoman and Beyond Black Bear Lake relates her own attempts to halt the decline of a single species of bird found only in Guatemala. The giant grebe, a flightless bird living on mile-deep Lake Atitlan, came to LaBastille's attention in 1964. Her population count revealed that a mere eighty-two birds remained. Over the course of twenty-five years, Anne LaBastille made the cause of the giant grebe her own. This is the story of her life in Guatemala, observing the birds and working to reclaim their habitat and--against odds that turned out to be overwhelming--give them a future.

The canon of U.S. nature writing, like the literary canon in general, has long been male-centered. But as this anthology shows, women’s voices have been there since the early Republic. At Home on This Earth features the most readable and accomplished pieces of nature writing by more than 50 U.S. women authors, from the early 19th century to the present. Spanning a range of genres including memoir, story, journal entry, sketch, and essay, it brings together pieces long out of print by such forgotten authors as Elizabeth C. Wright and Edith Thomas with selections by such well-known and acclaimed authors as Rachel Carson and Alice Walker. Moving far beyond the customary association of nature writing with New England and its Yankee progenitors, the book offers work from across the United States by Jewish, Asian, Hispanic, African American, and Native American women. With its rich diversity in voices, attitudes, and styles, this anthology expands the definition of nature writing, recognizes the specific contribution of women to this genre, and shows their unique relation to the natural world. Designed for undergraduate courses as well as for general readers, the book includes a short biography of the author preceding each selection. A bibliography and list of further reading is included, as well as an index of authors and titles. Lorraine Anderson’s introduction traces for the first time a distinct tradition of women’s nature writing in the United States.

This Handbook serves as a starting point for critical analysis and discourse about the status of women in outdoor learning environments (OLEs). Women choose to participate actively in outdoors careers, many believing the profession is a level playing field and that it offers alternatives to traditional sporting activities. They enter outdoor learning primarily on the strength of their enthusiasm for leading and teaching in natural environments and assume the field is inclusive, rewarding excellence regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic status, disability, or ethnicity. However, both research and collective experiences in OLEs suggest that many women feel invisible, relegated, marginalized, and undervalued. In response to this marginalization, this Handbook celebrates the richness of knowledge and practices of women practitioners in OLEs. Women scholars and practitioners from numerous fields, such as experiential outdoor education, adventure education, adventure therapy, and gender studies, explore the implications of their research and practice using poignant examples within their own disciplines. These insights emerge from similar life experiences as women and outdoor leaders in the 1970s to the present. Social inequalities still abound in OLEs, and the Handbook ensures that the contributions of women are highlighted as well as the work that needs to be done to make these spaces inclusive. Global in perspective and capacious in content, this one-stop volume is an indispensable reference resource for a diverse range of academics, including students and researchers in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, gender studies, geography, and environment studies, as well as the many outdoors fields.

Anne LaBastille and her German shepherds experience more daring, death defying encounters in the wilderness, and with humans, than ever before. WOODSWOMAN IIII covers five years, rather than ten, since life has speeded up both at her log cabin and old farm. Anne juggles hard to achieve balance between making a living as a freelance writer and publisher, and as a cabin-dweller and contemplative. Her humorous descriptions of the miserly book factory show the complex demands on her time. These are contrapuntal to her exquisite images of Adirondack nature and wildlife and the harmony she finds therein. Despite fewer days at the cabin, each visitation holds greater intensity, more loveliness, interdependence and familiarity with her pets and wildlife. Her message to women everywhere is: Be Courageous, Be Independent, and Be Compassionate. Her message to readers is captured in this visionary chronicling of sociological events and ecological changes over 35 years in the Adirondack Park. WOODSWOMAN, WOODSWOMAN II, WOODSWOMAN III, also available from West of the Wind Publications, Inc., Westport, NY.
