Product description


"Steve Edwards left Indiana for seven months of solitude in Oregon's Rogue River Canyon. As he offered himself up to his fears, his loneliness, a pathway of heart and mindfulness opened from within to lead him through his sojourn and into this story. Quietly and clearly told, unflaggingly honest, Breaking into the Backcountry joins a growing body of contemporary writing in the American contemplative tradition. It's a beautiful book." --John Daniel, author of The Far Corner and Rogue River Journal

"Steve Edwards's Rogue River wilderness is a place that offers many gifts, among them the words in this beautifully rendered, wonder-filled book. On its pages, we are invited to move beyond cynicism, loss, and fear---as he does-in order to embrace the life-changing 'miracle of solitude.'" --John T. Price, author of Not Just Any Land and Man Killed by Pheasant and Other Kinships
