The woods in Maine are beautiful, but they can also be a dangerous place. Since 1972, Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has been distributing a small, blaze orange paperback called You Alone in the Maine Woods as a part of an ongoing effort to keep people safe. The book is small, hand-illustrated and decidedly old-school--but has won over the hearts of many people in the state's outdoors community.
