Ely Echoes: The Portages Grow Longer (Minnesota)
Striding exuberantly into the 21st century, Bob Cary recounts memorable experiences of the 20th century: fun-filled boyhood escapades during the Depression, anecdotes from the war years, tales of guiding dignitaries in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, verbal snapshots of intriguing friends and neighbors up north, reflections on becoming a bridegroom in his seventies.
Indulge your own nostalgia while this consummate yarn-spinner warms your heart with his larger-than-life adventures. Gleaned from Bob's stories and insights over many years as editor of the Ely Echo, and as one of the country's premier outdoor writers, Ely Echoes is filled with tall tales, splendid spoofs, crazy campaigns, and off-the-wall observations-all told in the unique style of up-beat humor and persuasive passion that make Jackpine Bob Cary a celebrated north country character.
