A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters

A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters Lowest new price: $22.48
Lowest used price: $15.68
List price: $35.00
Author: Amy Freeman

From adventurers and educators Dave and Amy Freeman, a passionate and beautifully illustrated account of a year in the Boundary Waters.



The Boundary Waters are one of our national treasures, yet their existence has been consistently threatened. When the Freemans learned of mining in the area’s watershed, they decided to take action―by spending a year in the wilderness. This book tells the story of their adventure in northern Minnesota: of loons whistling under a moonrise, of mushrooms cooked over a fire, of a pine marten stalking a hare through winter’s first snowfall. In visceral language and gorgeous photos, the Freemans show us the value of wilderness and why we must protect it.



With the magic―and urgent message―that have brought an international audience to the Freemans’ cause, A Year in the Wilderness is a rousing cry of witness activism and a stunning tribute to this special region.

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail Lowest new price: $2.24
Lowest used price: $1.27
List price: $7.99
Author: Bill Bryson
Brand: Bryson, Bill

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.

The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Bill Bryson has made a living out of traveling and then writing about it. In The Lost Continent he re-created the road trips of his childhood; in Neither Here nor There he retraced the route he followed as a young backpacker traversing Europe. When this American transplant to Britain decided to return home, he made a farewell walking tour of the British countryside and produced Notes from a Small Island. Once back on American soil and safely settled in New Hampshire, Bryson once again hears the siren call of the open road--only this time it's a trail. The Appalachian Trail, to be exact. In A Walk in the Woods Bill Bryson tackles what is, for him, an entirely new subject: the American wilderness. Accompanied only by his old college buddy Stephen Katz, Bryson starts out one March morning in north Georgia, intending to walk the entire 2,100 miles to trail's end atop Maine's Mount Katahdin.

If nothing else, A Walk in the Woods is proof positive that the journey is the destination. As Bryson and Katz haul their out-of-shape, middle-aged butts over hill and dale, the reader is treated to both a very funny personal memoir and a delightful chronicle of the trail, the people who created it, and the places it passes through. Whether you plan to make a trip like this one yourself one day or only care to read about it, A Walk in the Woods is a great way to spend an afternoon. --Alix Wilber
