HERE IS a wonderful article about my old friend and mentor, Sigurd F. Olson, who through his books and warm personal communications changed my life. In 1987, with a group of seven fine friends, I retraced the Lonely Land route that the author, David Born, writes about here. There is much about that trip in my next book, A Wild Path. This is a great read. When you have 5 or 10 minutes and a cup of coffee, sit down and soak up the silence and beauty of Listening Point, and the vastness of the Lonely Land.
