Letters from the Woods: Looking at Life Through the Window of Wilderness
In the tradition of Thoreau, author and adventurer Michael C. Hurley offers insight on life, faith and family as revealed in the wilderness experience. Traveling all over North America and Canada by canoe between 1995 and 2003, often with his young children in tow, Hurley reflects on his experiences in intimate, thought-provoking essays and endearing, campfire tales. First published over eight years in the journal Paddle & Portage, these stories have become a modern classic of wilderness literature, transporting readers deep into the North Woods and along peaceful southern streams. With a quiet wisdom, Hurley invokes universal truths hidden in wild places and beckons readers into the forest to discover those truths for themselves.
