Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was born in Lewiston, a small town in western New York, to conservative, devout Catholic parents. I was at the hub of the town because I worked in my father’s drugstore from the age of four. I was labeled eccentric by my mother. #2 I worked at a drugstore as a child, and I was exposed to situations that were unusual for a child. I never had a meal at home, and I was surrounded by adults. My peer group became my coworkers. #3 I loved working with Roy, the pharmacist, because he was always in a good mood, and he made me feel like I was important. He never put off a good time, yet he always got his work done. #4 At 10:30 A. M. on Saturdays, all the employees had a break. We sat around the large red Coke cooler where the ice had melted and fished out our Cokes. I liked looking at things Roy-style, and when I was four, my mother taught me to read. Roy had been all over the United States.

Someone once asked me how much I charge to guide people into the woods. “That’s free,” I explained. “Anyone can get themselves into the woods. You pay me to get you out.” Can anyone really know the northern forest? It is something you feel more in your heart than in your head. You may be able to locate your place on a map, but can you pinpoint the places the forest has hold of your soul? For more than forty years, Maine Guide Earl Brechlin has sought the answers. Through this series of interconnected essays, Brechlin recounts the annual canoe trips to the North Maine Woods he has made with a small group of friends, closing with the death of his twin brother and the group’s last trip to spread his brother’s ashes in the place he loved best. Often humorous and thrilling at once, the heartfelt narrative is peppered with tidbits of history, woods lore, and sage advice from a seasoned outdoorsman. What shines through is the author’s profound love of the natural world and his place in it.
