Douglas Wood for "Deep Woods, Wild Waters"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join us on Tuesday, May 2nd to hear Douglas Wood read and discuss his memoir, "Deep Woods, Wild Waters." Book signing to follow. 

An author and expert woodsman and wilderness canoe guide, Douglas Wood offers all his storytelling and bushwhacking skills as he takes us hurtling down wild rapids, crossing stormy lakes, or simply navigating the treacherous currents and twisty trails of everyday life. A warm, generous, and knowing guide, Wood maps a journey that “anyone can take, through a landscape anyone can know.” 

"Inviting as a dip in a cool northern lake on a sizzling summer day, Deep Woods, Wild Waters is a true gift. Douglas Wood’s memoir conveys the haunting beauty of the Northwoods with a naturalist’s eye. He recounts his life as a guide, musician, and writer—boy, father, and grandfather—and beckons readers to step away from modern, fast-paced lives to slow down, breathe, and discover the cosmos in a grain of sand." --Mary Casanova, author of Ice-Out
