Reviews

Hildebrand has every skill of mind and craft to enfold us in his experience. The New Yorker " A finely written account of coming to terms with one s self, of the realities of one s dreams. Recommended for anyone who would follow Thoreau into the woods, even now. Library Journal " For many of us the North has been the one place where a certain elemental experience of land, water, and people can still be had. John Hildebrand s personal account of this experience has a particular freshness and poignancy. It is the record of a journey, as much inward as it is outward, and all the better for that.
