Publisher Comments:

Step outside and marvel at the grand experience of the North — the power of a storm building on the greatest of the Great Lakes, the glory of Northern Lights in the shimmering night sky, the embracing, absolute silence of a snowhouse. Or stay inside with Quiet Magic and savor Sam Cook's unique blend of sensitive portrayals and gentle humor.<P>Starting with his description of one of nature's wondes — the simplicity of a stand of reeds against a wide-open sunset — and ending with a deep appreciation for the never-ending surprises of the outdoors, Cook weaves a tapestry of enchanting images of the North Woods and keeps you smiling and chuckling all the way. In this long-awaited paperback edition, Sam Cook invites you to look outward to discover the North Country and look inward to discover yourself.
