“Heartfelt, but never sentimental; humorous, but always thoughtful; biting, but always kind, Will Lange's essays are as refreshing as a cool autumn morning atop a high peak. He's a master storyteller, on the trail, around the campfire, or with your heels up in a favorite chair sipping tea.” —Dan Szczesny, author of Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie

Inspired by New Hampshire Public Television’s award-winning series Windows to the Wild

A collection of columns about the wilderness of New England and more from well-known New Hampshire and Vermont naturalist and commentator Willem Lange.

Reviews / Endorsements

“It's always a pleasure to hit the trail with the well-traveled and woods-wise Willem Lange, whether the destination is a White Mountains hut, a Maine Wilderness lodge, or a breathtaking backcountry vista. In many ways, Will's outlook mirrors AMC's mission of inspiring people to get outdoors and make a closer connection with the natural world. Windows to the Wild, and the essays in this book, provide the inspiration to explore, enjoy, and care for the region's mountains, waters, forests, and trails.” —Rob Burbank, Director of Media and Public Affairs, Appalachian Mountain Club

“New England is fortunate to have Willem Lange to tell the stories of wild places and the people who thrive in them. Reading of his adventures, watching them on New Hampshire Public Television, or listening to them while sharing a mountain with Willem is akin to sitting around the fire with one of the grand storytellers of old.” —Tom Ryan, author of Following Atticus: Forty-eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship

WILLEM LANGE has worked as an Adirondack guide, a preacher, a bartender, a construction laborer, a cab driver, a bob-sled run announcer, a bookkeeper, a ranch hand, a high-school English teacher, a carpenter, a contractor, and from 1968 to 1972 as director of Dartmouth College’s Outward Bound Center. For more than thirty years he has been writing a weekly column, A Yankee Notebook, which appears in newspapers all over New England. He is a regular commentator on Vermont Public Television and Vermont Public Radio, and is the host of New Hampshire Public Television’s award-winning series Windows to the Wild.
