I want to say how much I liked Tom Woodman’s essay “The Mayor of Cold River” in the March/April issue of the Explorer. Since I had just read and reviewed the latest book about our favorite Adirondack hermit, your writing hit me hard, particularly the difference between being an activist and being an isolationist. It is easy to retreat to our beautiful woods and do nothing. It is much more difficult to stand in our beautiful woods and think about what else we can do to protect them.
Thank you for reminding readers to keep up the fight.
