Nature Norm's North Woods
By: Norman Weeks
Who is Nature Norm?
Nature Norm (Norman Weeks) has had a 25-year career as a teaching naturalist, a director of outdoor recreation programs, and the director of a resident summer camp for children. The camp program under his administration received several national awards for exemplary excellence, as well as attention in Camping magazine and on a television interview program.
Norman Weeks has had 40 years' acquaintance with the north woods. He has taken many canoeing/ camping excursions into the Boundary Waters and the Quetico, some as guide for groups of young people. Over the years, he has explored much of the woods and waters between Ely and International Falls.
From his cabin on Pelican Lake in northeastern Minnesota, he ventures out on daily local excursions, as related in Nature Norm's North Woods, an anecdotal natural history. The principal theme of the book is the rediscovery of the human direct experiential relatedness to Nature in a society of people ever more desensitized. An old-fashioned moralizing naturalist in the American tradition of Thoreau and Sigurd Olson, Norman Weeks is, above all, an engaging storyteller.
