Freedom in the Wilds
An Artist in the Adirondacks, Third Edition

Harold Weston
Edited by Rebecca Foster

Cloth $24.95    |    978-0-8156-0899-8    |    2008

"Weston produced exquisite paintings inspired by his intense engagement with the Adirondacks, becoming along the way one of the premier American artists of his generation."—Adirondack Explorer

"Foster’s work offers a more intimate glimpse into the passionate young man who gave up a life of privilege to rough it in the wilderness..."—The Post Star

"Rebecca Foster’s new edition of Harold Weston’s great autobiographical meditation on nature and art is much more than a new edition. It’s the book Weston himself might have written, if he’d had time and the advantage of looking back on his life from the mountaintop. It’s a unique addition to the literature of 20th century art. With these new materials, Foster has brought to Weston’s book a context, artistic, philosophical, and biographical, that places it among the classics of American writing about the relationship between art, nature, and the deeply examined life."—Russell Banks, author of Cloudsplitter, The Sweet Hereafter
