What starts as a simple fishing trip becomes a cathartic experience in the untamed wilderness of Ontario’s northwestern canoe country.
A nine-day fishing trip turns into a profound life-altering event and marks the beginning of a lifelong love affair with the untamed wilderness of Canoe Country in northwestern Ontario. Author Darryl Blazino describes how he became entranced by the beauty and wonder of a land that beckoned him back again and again.
This collection of personal stories captures a range of experiences and emotions highlighting the very best and very worst of times gleaned from more than 12 years’ worth of adventures in the great outdoors. Incredible close-up, intimate encounters with wildlife, harrowing brushes with danger, the challenges of wilderness camping with small children, and moments of intense splendour and serenity are told in descriptive detail and illustrated with breathtaking photography.
