Author Event with Hap Wilson

That right folks Hap Wilson has a new book coming out called Trails and Tribulations: Confessions of a Wilderness Pathfinder. We are currently waiting to find out the actual release date for the book, before we announce the author event, so stay tuned for updates. Local Band Headframe will also be playing at the Author event!!

In an age when 'survival' shows permeate the media, noted northern traveller Hap Wilson shares accounts of his lifelong involvement with wilderness living within the Canadian Shield. Wilson knows better than most how to live in the woods. As park ranger, canoe guide, outfitter, trail builder, and environmental activist, he learned from firsthand experience that nature can neither be beaten or tamed.Presented in three sections, [i]Trails and Tribulations[/i] takes the reader on a journey with the author through natural settings ranging from austere to mysterious and breathtaking. Contents include animal attacks, bush fires, the threat of hypothermia, and vision-quest sites, to name but a few.

Author Bio

Hap Wilson has paddled over 50,000 km from coast-to-coast and is the recipient of the Bill Mason Award. He is the author of numerous books including Canoeing, Kayaking and Hiking Temagami. During the making of the Attenborough movie "Grey Owl," Wilson worked as actor Pierce Brosnan's personal outdoors-skills trainer. He lives in Rosseau, Ontario.

Author Mike Gelinas will be in the store April 24th from 4 to 6 pm show casing his new book "25 'must see' attractions in America". This book chronicles a two year trip across America. Mike and Karin Gelinas left the comforts of home to travel in a 35 foot motor home to visit America. What they discover is not only the every day attractions like Disney World and New Orleans, but the "off the beaten path" attractions that probably would not make it in most books.
