Invited to several out-of-doors adventures of the authors world; on the water and memorable hikes. You may actually feel you are there. If you can't go to these places read and enjoy them on his Tundra Walk as he goes into the mountains and backcountry of Colorado. The joy and fun of being on the water traversing, the great outdoors of this country is a chore George easily shares. This is a gentle ride on the waters and an easy hiked trail of our land that can best be appreciated by being there. Campbell has volunteered in the National Park system for several years. In Places Worth Preserving he shows us just why the wild backcountry is important to us all. Several vignettes illustrate an extended back packing trip into the Grand Canyon describing the long trail under pack and the reality as well as the beauty most people only see from the rim or the window of their car. Throughout these pages of descriptive lyrics, Campbell's pleasure in adventure is here for all to enjoy the Wild Spaces. His off trail humor is demonstrated in Love Affair and Pee Bottle. Connecting with and appreciation of wild life is evident in Halcyon, Antlers and Eagles. From Bones to Distant Shore you will enjoy the Terrain of real life adventures, challenging open spaces in nature's poetry. George shows us a world he has made his own of wild things wild places, the river, the hike, where he has spent many months in the landscape of nature. Word-painted imagery from the authors many palettes, look at natures rumbling color undercurrents. This work should please most anyone who enjoys the out-of-doors.
