"Reflections from the Riverfront" is an eclectic mix of writings of the author's adventures, many of which take place on foot or in his kayak. There is travel writing here, but beautiful nature writing, too, and a dash of memoir sprinkled in. Join Tim as he enjoys a swanky meal and concert at a jazz club in Minneapolis, rides a passenger train through the heart of the river valley, watches the dance of the prairie from the cockpit of his kayak, and sits on a bench in St. Paul on the first Friday of each month for an entire year to contemplate life in a river town.
