MBB: Walt McLaughlin book signing: Great Wild Science

In "Deep Forest Ruminations," the main narrative in this collection, the author develops a philosophy tempered by the wild while camped with his German shepherd dog on a pristine lake in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness. Leading up to this experiment in staying put, the twelve shorter narratives and personal essays brought together here focus more on backpacking and snowshoeing in the Adirondacks over the course of two decades, both alone and with others.
