About the Book

“Cattails, Speckled Alders and Golden Tamaracks” contains twenty true short stories, which highlight memorable outings the author has experienced over the past six decades. Using the out-of-doors as a setting, these tales will immerse the reader in numerous remote, pristine places spanning much of the North American Continent.

The staring roles are shared by the author’s numerous outdoor friends, canine companions, and co-stars many of Ma Nature’s creatures.

The bonding that occurs between master and dog is a central theme that is interwoven throughout the tales, as well as the way our human values concerning man’s relationship with nature changes as our aging process advances.

The author’s deep love and concern for the world’s wild places is subtlety laced throughout the stories by “Buckshot”, the Master Story Teller of the Northwood’s”!
