In Just Off Main Street, author Steven Mulak takes us on a seasonal tour that, month by month, celebrates his beloved New England’s landscape, as well as the people, plants, and animals that occupy it. Mulak explores his personal world just off Main Street in such a wise, reflective manner that we more fully appreciate the wonders that take place in our own backyards.
Mulak combines his observational skills with the meticulous eye of the fine artist he is. From the emotionally uplifting sight of spring’s first pussy willows to the kaleidoscope of autumn color, to the occasional despair of never-ending winter, this book offers a fresh look at New England. Longtime Mulak readers will be reunited with a familiar companion, while first-timers will be introduced to a new friend. Both will appreciate Steven’s insightful discoveries of a year’s worth of living "just off Main Street."
" conversational tone and his illustrations combine to make a book that speaks volumes about the joys we can find in our own backyards." -- The Maine Event
