A Boundary Waters History: Canoeing Across Time by Stephen Wilbers,Bill Hansen

By Stephen Wilbers,Bill Hansen

Teasing out the background of a spot celebrated for timelessness—where numerous paddle strokes have disappeared into transparent waters—requires a yes and attentive hand. Stephen Wilbers’s account reaches again to the glaciers that first carved out the Boundary Waters and to the unique population, in addition to to generations of wasteland explorers, either prior and current. He does so with no wasting the private courting equipped via a life of pilgrimages (anchored by way of nearly 3 many years of journeys along with his father). This tale captures the untold broader narrative of the area, in addition to one thousand diverse information bound to be well-known through fellow pilgrims, just like the grinding rhythm of a protracted portage or the loon name that slips into that final second prior to sleep.
