FREEDOM IN THE WILDS: AN ARTIST IN THE ADIRONDACKS (Third Edition)

Harold Weston
Syracuse University Press, 2008

"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... 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

Adirondack Center for Writing, Best Nonfiction Award 2009.

Reviewed in the Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies.

"Kent's The Road Roller, Hartley's almost fauvist Mountain Lake - Autumn, Weston's Winds, Upper Ausable Lake are all thrilling masterpieces, deeply connected to the natural world, not through ordinary means of representation but a more powerful process of intimation and suggestion." Philip Kennicott, The Washington Post, March 6, 2014.
