Reflections from the North Country (Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage)
Written in the last years of his life, Reflections from the North Country is often considered Sigurd Olson's most intellectually significant work. Based on speeches delivered at town meetings and government hearings, Olson outlines the wilderness philosophy he developed while working as an outspoken advocate for the conservation of America's natural heritage. This book joins The Singing Wilderness and Listening Point as the core of Olson's work that became an inspiration to the burgeoning environmental movement.
