Promotional Information

The story of neophyte outdoorsman Edwards's seven months as a caretaker of the Dutch Henry Ranch, a wilderness homestead in Oregon's Klamath Mountains

About the Author

Steve Edwards lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, with his wife and young son.


"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 "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
