In this conversation, Jack reveals some of the secrets of working with fire, ecologist Nick Fisichelli shows us how trees store the energy that Jack converts into his art, and Maine Guide Polly Mahoney tells stories about her experiences as a Maine Guide, helping all of us feel the power and grandeur of the forest.
