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.
