The Firegrate Review

Editing and publishing two volumes of a canoe country chapbook.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is full of stories. Those who have explored its vast network of lakes and rivers know that canoe country is a place to forge connections with nature, friends and family, and ourselves. It is a place for solitude and adventure, for the challenge of paddling and portaging, and respite from the hectic modern world.

The stories in these chapbooks reflect the experiences of people who know and love the wilderness. Contained in these works are the call of loons, the hard work of fighting a headwind, and the utter silence of a Boundary Waters evening after the wind has died and you can only sit in awe at the water’s edge.
