WELL, TODAY’S SAD NEWS of the loss of a grand old tree friend was balanced by a bit of happy news. It seems my memoir, “Deep Woods, Wild Waters” was named by Minnesota Monthly one of the top ten books of the last decade on Minnesota sports and outdoors. Who knew?! Notice sent to me by my publisher, University of MN Press, from MN. Monthly, 11/25, 2020. Must say, it made me smile.
“DEEP WOODS, WILD WATERS by Douglas Wood
Amid acclaimed Minnesota naturalist Douglas Wood’s shelves’ worth of books, Deep Woods, Wild Waters could be his finest. Wood’s account of his life in the outdoors, traversing Minnesota’s wilderness, trails, and rapids is a striking enticement to spend time in the state’s Northwoods. Wood’s elegant prose in this collection of essays makes for an engaging brand of nature writing.”
