Boundary Waters: The Grace of the Wild
by Paul Gruchow
Organized by the seasons of the year, Boundary Waters: The Grace of the Wild explores the natural and soul-sustaining beauty of the largest roadless area east of the Rocky Mountains. Gruchow skies, backpacks, and canoes through such places as Sea Gull Lake, Isle Royale National Park, the Grand Portage Trail, Quetico Provincial Park, and Voyageurs National Park, turning a naturalist's eye on a wilderness of wolves, moose, and loons. Drawing on the works of Thoreau and Wendell Berry, he explores the relationship of person to place, illuminating not only our lands, but our souls. Simply a must read.
