Endurance.

Some books make ideas tangible and durable—full of muscle to shape minds. Paddle North sets out to explore the true nature of wildness within the boundary lakes wilderness of Minnesota and Ontario and to reconcile the rift between wild and civilized.

A finalist in the Minnesota Book Awards 2011, Paddle North receives good notice and praise. Among the reviews, Kurt Repanshek in National Parks Traveler, says:

“…But the joy and wonder of this book is found within the narrative Mr. Breining weaves as he takes in the landscape his canoe glides through, a narrative that shows he is surely as deft with word-smithing as he must be with paddling.”
