Book Description

We quake to the haunting calls of loons and wolves, gape at the shimmering curtains of the northern lights, look expectantly for the iconic moose. But the richest and most engaging qualities of Wilbers' memoir are its social scenes. Far from being alone in the wilderness, he is surrounded by family and friends. Greg Breining, author of Paddle North: Canoeing the Boundary Waters Quetico Wilderness
This is a deeply personal, yet universal story. Stephen Wilbers keenly observes nature, within the wilderness and within the human heart. A well-told memoir that is funny, poignant and ultimately profound. Bill Hansen, Sawbill Canoe Outfitters

This second volume...takes on true form and meaning because of Eddy, the author's son, whom we watch grow from age four (baby toads in the water jugs) to a tall twenty-two who makes the wilderness his own at every turn. It is through Eddy that we feel the movement of time, through his humor and antics that we love our own children even more. Beth Waterhouse, Executive director, Ernest Oberholtzer Foundation

5.0 out of 5 stars A first-rate adventure story 4 Oct. 2012
By Terry - Published on
Once you start reading Stephen Wilbers' "Canoeing the Boundary Waters Wilderness" forget about going to work the next day. You will be up all night because this is a first-rate adventure story.

I never thought a book without a single dead body or some sex could keep me up all night, but ths one did. I could smell the coffee and bacon, hear the bass slap on the lake, and feel the cold from jumping into those pristine and icy northern Minnesota lakes.

Learn about a part of North American history in a way few of us will ever personally experience.

Well done.
5.0 out of 5 stars Canoeing the Boundary Waters Wilderness: A Sawbill Log 18 Oct. 2012
By Tom - Published on
I just completed Steve's book, reading part of it on a BWCA canoe trip. His passion for the wilderness (and the Boundary Waters in particular) comes alive in this Sawbill Log as he captures the true spirit of canoe camping as told through his personal experiences with family and friends, especially his dad and Eddy.

Anyone who has canoed the BWCA will identify with and enjoy this book. His careful use of quotes from known authors, Ernest Oberholtzer, Sigurd Olson and others help to historically enhance his writing; a joy to read.
