    Foerster s first book contains both first person narratives as well as third person accounts This is non fiction wilderness writing My favorites included Foerster s recounting of his brother in law sea kayaking from Isle Royale to Dollar Bay, the rescue of a family caught in a canoe off the shore of Eagle River, and a first person account of hiking from Lac La Belle around the Keewenaw Point during Michigan Tech s spring break.

    Put this book in your backpack you head out to the island I d meant to read it beforehand but time got away from me so I ended up stashing it in the top of my backpack before a 6 day trek at the end of July I read it every night in the shelters, then retold the stories the next day to the five women I was hiking with Forrester s voice is quiet yet clear, and somehow perfectly reflects the island s own personality.

  6. Dooug

    haven t read much adventure in a while, but i spent a couple weeks up in the keweenaw this year and got this book to motivate me to get to isle royale not the best writing ever, but heart felt and at times dramatic enough that I couldn t put it down it is a work of love undeniably.

  7. Mandy

    I like wilderness and adventure stories, so I ve read a lot, and this one is great Clear, concise prose lush descriptions of the island, lake and its wildlife There s humor, sorrow, and even suspense The author just nails it It s also a fairly thin volume good to tuck in your backpack.

  8. Peggy

    I loved this book Reminded me of A Walk In the Woods by Bill Bryson Several short stories of Vic and Ken s adventures on Isle Royale It gave a good imaginative impression of the Isle with much humor.
