I have taught the ways of the wilderness for well over thirty years and have authored a novel which dives deep into the shadows that follow you as you traverse wilderness trails. It is my hope to reach as many people as possible to tell everyone that the wilderness is not a place to be wary of. It is the only place where a person can dig deep into their soul and find that which is hidden to them by modern day society.

An excerpt from the novel, "A Long Paddle Home."

After a long day of paddling, I settled in for the night and spent several hours ruminating on some ideas I had for my book "A Long Paddle Home."

As the fire pushed the dampness from my clothes, the steam mingled with the smoke and rose into the darkening sky. 

I envisioned Lisa - a character within the story, sitting by a similar fire and wondered how she would feel as the darkness slowly stole my sight.  

I found her voice and transcribed it into the book. 

This is a short excerpt from the novel. 

You can find it at Blue Heron Books in Uxbridge, Ontario, Masters Book Store in Haliburton, Ontario, and on-line at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indigo.
