About the Author

Author Donald A. Wilson has published more than twenty books and other materials about the Maine woods. He holds forestry degrees from the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire and has taught at both institutions for many years. Wilson's appreciation of the history and importance of the Maine woods has been gleaned throughout his life from firsthand experience and from learning from those who came before him, when loggers "let daylight into the swamp."

More About the Author

Donald A. Wilson, LLS, PLS, RPF
Don is President of Land and Boundary Consultants, Inc., based in southeastern New Hampshire, and has been in practice as a land boundary consultant since 1974 and has been surveying since 1962. Don is both a licensed land surveyor and professional forester. He has presented seminars on a variety of topics including description interpretation, boundary evidence, surveying law, and various aspects of forensic science.

Don is a member of, and has been active in, many surveying, mapping, and forestry organizations. He is past president of both the Maine Society of Land Surveyors and the New Hampshire Land Surveyors Association.

In addition to over 200 technical publications in several disciplines, Don has been involved with writing more than 50 books. The 6th editions of Evidence & Procedures for Boundary Location and its companion title, Boundary Control and Legal Principles, both of which he is a co-author, are the leading surveying textbooks. Two of his more recent publications, Interpreting Land Records and Forensic Procedures for Boundary & Title Investigation, are proving to be a favorite among attorneys, title examiners and surveyors. He has written two other boundary-related texts as well as researched and compiled the subject matter for seven state boundary and surveying law books.

Don is a former faculty member of the University of Maine where he taught surveying in the School of Forestry and the Department of Civil Engineering. He is also a former faculty member at the University of New Hampshire where he continues to teach courses for the UNH Professional Development & Training Program. He is a member of the Professional Surveyor/Red Vector "Dream Team" providing on-line education for surveyors and related professionals. Presently this cooperative is offering twelve separate courses authored by Don with more currently being developed.

In addition to the writing and lecturing about surveying, Don is the fourth generation of a family that owned and operated the sporting camps, Wilson's on Moosehead Lake, for over 109 years. He is a registered Maine Guide, avid fly fisherman and has maintained an interest in the sporting and resort history of Maine.

Mr. Wilson gets it "right" when describing the Irish, French and German immigrants that went into the forest to earn a living. These men were tough as nails and most had little to lose in the brutal conditions of America's northern forests. The old photography is a treasure in itself.

A veteran, in a nursing home, wanted a picture book of American logger. This book provided this and was very well liked by the resident.
