Amy and Dave Freeman will sign

Amy and Dave Freeman will sign A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters (Milkweed, $35.00). The Boundary Waters are one of our national treasures, yet their existence has been consistently threatened. When the Freemans learned of mining in the area's watershed, they decided to take action--by spending a year in the wilderness. This book tells the story of their adventure in northern Minnesota: of loons whistling under a moonrise, of mushrooms cooked over a fire, of a pine marten stalking a hare through winter's first snowfall. In visceral language and gorgeous photos, the Freemans show us the value of wilderness and why we must protect it. With the magic--and urgent message--that have brought an international audience to the Freemans' cause, A Year in the Wilderness is a rousing cry of witness activism and a stunning tribute to this special region.
