Heinrich (Ravens in Winter, , etc.), a zoologist tired of paper pushing at the University of Vermont, retreats to the New England Author: Bernd Heinrich. A Year in the Maine Woods begins in late May, when the author drives from his home in Vermont to a cabin in the Maine woods to spend one year observing the plants and animals of that region. He takes only his pet raven, Jack, along with him. When he arrives he takes stock of everything he wants to accomplish before the winter.

  - - A Home in the Maine Woods Project - -> There is an old cabin on 50 acres of woodland in northeastern Maine that will soon be turned into a home, again. The cabin was built by Chaya’s parents in the early 70’s as part of the back to the land movement that had an epicenter in the woods of Maine. A federal, state, and local partnership created the 13 Mile Woods Community Forest in Errol, NH, but it took one man's vision and the dedication and perseverance from the town's citizens to conserve the 5, acres of working forest land along .
