A modern classic of wilderness literature, Hurley's Journal was written and published quarterly by Michael Hurley from 1995 to 2003. It began as a kitchen-table gazette that Hurley produced for a few family and friends as an excuse to go canoe-camping all over North America with his children, but it quickly grew into a literary gem cherished by more than 10,000 paying subscribers in 48 states and overseas. The journal provided not only practical advice but celebrated the romance, lore, and wisdom of life in the wilderness in award-winning prose. The original issues are now collectors' items among the canoeing faithful. This 20th anniversary edition brings to a new generation of voyageurs, in one hardcover volume spanning nearly 800 pages, Hurley's essays, detailed trip reports, and intricate, hand-drawn maps for fifty-two canoe trips in thirteen states and Canada, ranging from weekend getaways to far-flung wilderness adventures. Beautifully illustrated with more than one hundred pages of stunning black-and-white photographs of the author's adventures, Hurley's Journal is certain to be a treasured reference and beloved companion to explorers and family campers alike for years to come.
