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. The result is a juxtaposition of thought and movement exploring the beauty, wonder and mystery of the natural world and our place in it.
