Overview

Wilderness Days by Sigurd F. Olson

In the evocative words of one of America’s best-loved nature writers, Wilderness Days brings together the essence of the magnificent wilderness with which he so deeply identifies. Sigurd F. Olson collects from his writings those moments that most vividly depict the turn of the seasons in the great woodlands and waters of the legendary Quetico-Superior region overlapping the Ontario-Minnesota border.
