Annette Jackson

Annette Jackson (1906-1971) grew up in Maine’s North Woods. She met Dave Jackson, a game warden at Umsaskis Lake in the Allagash Wilderness area, in 1930 and they were married two years later. While raising children, hunting, fishing and enjoying herself, Jackson also started to write about her experiences, and My Life in the Maine Woods was first published in 1954. She also wrote a popular newspaper column, “The Wisdom of the Timberlands” for a northern Maine newspaper.
