Early Wilderness Reflections March 22 2010
By David L. McHone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Calvin Rutstrum joins Bill Magie and Sig Olson in providing us with some of the most meaningful insight into what is so special about the Boundary Waters Area. Calvin focuses on the early years and how wilderness travelers used the most basic equipment and everyday food supplies, sometimes offering the simplicity of yesterday with our more complicated methods of travel, today. Chapter to chapter, Calvin moves from story-telling, to equipment considerations, and then to his philosophy about urban vs. rural living and the (oft times) lost value of practical skills. As a frequent wilderness canoe traveler, I fully enjoyed his stories and his reflections. If you are considering a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area for the first time, this quick and enjoyable read will multiply you trip experience - many-fold.

Calvin always gets top notch from me... Nov. 7 2007
By Walter C. Skrzypek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
From a true pioneer outdoorsman...I love Calvin's tales interspersed in his readings with some opinions tossed about about politics, economics, and the state of his future and now, our past...Just very well written from an original. His stories that he chats about in between are short and enjoyable. I love his work.
