William Durbin will be signing copies of his new book, "Dead Man's Rapids," on Monday, November 6th at 5:00pm-6:00pm. Stop by the store to meet and chat with Durbin and get your book signed! 

The further adventures of a boy discovering the challenges and the humor of a log drive in Minnesota’s north woods in 1899. When 13-year-old Ben Ward left school to work with his Pa in a logging camp, a winter of peeling potatoes wasn’t the adventure he had in mind. Taking up where Blackwater Ben left off, Dead Man’s Rapids returns to Minnesota’s north woods in the late nineteenth century, and with warmth, humor, and attention to historical detail engages readers young and old.
