      The diversity of landscapes evoked in Beyond the Trees is matched only by the characters who inhabit them. Traverse the footsteps of Objibwe hunters and early explorers in the remote woods of Brule River State Forest. Trek past the remains of bygone logging and CCC camps in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forests. Glimpse into the world of Great Lakes shipping in Point Beach State Forest. Walk on trails named after Joun Muir and Increase Lapham in the Kettle Moraine State Forest, and experience urban green space at Milwaukee's Havenwoods State Forests. From orchids to oak savannah, beaver to brook trout, and white-tailed deer to timber wolves, discover Wisconsin's flora and fauna.

      Richly illustrated with color photographs by the author' husband, John TY. Andrews, and other professional photographers, Beyond the Trees is also an informative visual portrait of these stunning landscapes. Archival images, informative sidebars, locator maps, and contact information for Wisconsin state and federal forests round out this unique book.

      Nature writer Candice Gaukel Andrews weaves together contemporary observations and historical reminiscences in "Beyond the Trees: Stories of Wisconsin Forests." Readers will journey to some of the most pristine and notable places in the Upper Midwest: Wisconsin's state and national forests.
