Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sam Cook's writing has brought readers home to the north country for almost two decades. Gather around Friendship Fires and cover new ground with visits to the region's vast prairies, towering forests and shimmering water retreats. Friendship Fires lives up to its name by sparking the memories shared by anyone who's dusted off a canoe at the first break of ice in spring or savored autumn's fading sun in late November. Sam's stories, both touching and hilarious, offer a new perspective on how the outdoors rekindles the wilderness spirit when we build our own friendship fires.
