Overview

Step outside and marvel at the grand experience of the North-the power of a storm building on the greatest of the Great Lakes, the glory of Northern Lights in the shimmering night sky, the embracing, absolute silence of a snowhouse. Or stay inside with Quiet Magic and savor Sam Cook's unique blend of sensitive portrayals and gentle humor.

Starting with his discovery of one of nature's wonders-the simplicity of a stand of reeds against a wide-open sunset-and ending with a deep appreciation for the never-ending surprises of the outdoors, Sam Cook weaves a tapestry of enchanting images of the North Woods and keeps you smiling and chuckling all the way.

In this long-awaited paperback edition, Sam Cook invites you to look outward to discover the North Country, and look inward to discover yourself.
