Editorial Reviews

The irascible Bill Magie offers today's Canoe Country travelers an invaluable and entertaining glimpse into the wilderness of bygone days. Reading Bill's stories makes you wish you could have shared a campfire with him 70 years ago. Thanks to Dave Olesen, you almost can.

Sam Cook, author of Up North, Camp Sites and Moving Waters.

Dave Olesen has captured a sweet spot in place-based writing where mystery, beauty, paradox, contradiction, intimacy all gel together into an elegant truth.

Robert Henderson author of Every Trail has a Story: Heritage Travel in Canada

This is a beautifully written, often moving account of a couple’s quest to live a life together that touches what matters.
