May 24, 2013: It's the Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer. Many people will be heading to the woods, the beach, or the lake for the holiday. I too have spent many a memorial day relaxing in the great outdoors. One thing that makes this time so wonderful is the opportunity to read a great book.
If headed to the National Parks this weekend, may I suggest you take a
copy of Unleashing Colter's Hell
with you? It's a fun, roller coaster ride of the thriller. A great
escape from the real world.
Here is a short list of other great outdoor reads.
Encounters with the Archdruid
Three vignettes on David Brower, the father of the modern environmental
movement. Great sketches of the passion and skill David Brower brought to
the environmental movement.
Novel that investigates what we call reality is merely an illusion we
create for learning and enjoyment.
Angels and Demons
Dan Brown’s best Robert Langdon novel.
Comprehensive review of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Gives one
appreciation for the ultimate camping trip.
