Overview

Camp Sights welcomes you to the intimate beauty of camps-quiet camps for fathers and daughters, familiar camps on a favorite lake with good friends, hunting camps with their rich histories and traditions, serene camps under the starry sky of a summer night, peaceful camps warmed by supper cooking on the stove.

You'll experience the challenges and adventures of life in the North Woods-a chance encounter with Arctic wolves on Canada's Ellesmere Island, a night on the Gods River on a canoe trip to Hudson Bay, a whiteout storm in the barren lands of the Northwest Territories. But you'll also learn of the everyday pleasures of the outdoors-stories of steelhead fishing, deer and duck hunting, and unforgettable characters like canoe builder Joe Seliga, legendary trout fisherman Benny Larson, and Ely's "Jackpine" Bob Cary.

Throughout the book, Sam Cook offers insights into the subtleties of the natural world that all too often go unnoticed, inviting you to see your world anew.

In 1976 Sam Cook trekked north from his native Kansas to work for an outfitter in the Superior-Quetico canoe country. Now, as the Duluth News-Tribune's outdoors writer, he uses Duluth, Minnesota, as "base camp" for creating his humorous, powerful, and compassionate columns.

    Camp Sights

    I thought that the stories in this book were excellent because they all pertain to the outdoors. The stories about hunting were my favorite since every hunt can never be the same. All of the fishing that was done in this book could make some peoples heads spin unless you enjoy the outdoors. What I am trying to say is that this is a great book for everyone who loves the outdoors.
