    Alone in a Canoe: One Man, One Canoe, Five Solo Journeys

    One man, one canoe, five solo journeys to five remote wilderness regions in Western Ontario, Canada.

    Can you imagine being retired (over 60), healthy and determined to research and travel alone for three weeks or longer on numerous wilderness trips into areas that you know little about? Can you imagine not being in verbal or social media contact with anyone for over one hundred days of travel? What does it take to be self sustained and responsible for all of one’s actions and decisions?

    The solo canoe journal stories are a combination of the day to day excursions and decisions that a solo paddler must make to successfully navigate from one lake or campsite to another and to another and so on while managing to stay safe and to not get lost in the wilderness. The journal stories are also filled with very real and personal insights into the mind frame of the author who attempts to relate to the reader the intense feeling of what wilderness, or solitude or fear or a number of intimate emotions means to him in the moment.

    Alone in a Canoe also includes detailed gear and food lists and trip statistics. The stories are inspiring. It is a must read if you ever dreamed about what it would be like to be alone in a canoe in the wilderness for any length of time. The book is printed in a 8 ½ by 8 ½ format to enhance the more than 200 color photos documenting the journeys.

    People who Paddle a Canoe, Outdoor and Wilderness Enthusiasts, Backcountry Educators, Adventure Advocates, Future Campers, Fisherman, Recreators, Dreamers, Individuals who Cherish Solitude, and Folks who enjoy great Nature Photography will enjoy this book.

    FROM GREEN HILLS TO BLUE SEAS: Memoirs of Vice Admiral James A. Sagerholm, USN (Ret.)

    From Green Hills to Blue Seas is the memoir of a young American determined to be a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy. With no nominations available from his state’s members of Congress, he enlists. From such humble beginnings, the young man makes his own way and retires from the US Navy thirty-nine years later in the rank of vice admiral. Beyond being a compelling story of personal success, From Green Hills to Blue Seas is one of a family’s triumph over tragedy and a military community’s legacy of strength and national service. Author James Sagerholm’s only son went on to attend the Naval Academy. Though his life was cut tragically short during a military aircraft accident, his own son grew up knowing his father had been a hero. That boy became a third-generation graduate of the academy, served his country in Afghanistan, and is now a Marine Corps captain. He encouraged his grandfather to write this memoir, drawing together one family’s story―and opening it up to touch the lives of other US Navy families.

    I Called Myself Cassandra

         With his confession, I realized Robin was torn and left ripped apart by two lovers who demanded from him two completely different things. One wanted to start a new family, while the other wanted him to stick around for her aging, maturing, and now trifling self. Verna gave him a fresh opportunity, while the only thing I had to offer was to grow old together in our not-so-golden years, which could very well become eclipsed by our darkest times apart. The promise I was willing to see through with him, no matter the bumps and bruises it has caused us, was companionship, continuing what we started ages ago. As young lovers, we once vowed to each other that our love would survive the test of time. However, Verna’s newer promise of a more youthful life seemed to be more riveting to him.

    Miz Bambo

    Carol Craig Cowan-Lanyon had an idyllic childhood. Her mother, “Miz Bambo,” embodied comfort, filling her world with art and magic. Her father kept her safe and told her she could be anything she wanted to be. But when Carol’s father died just before her fifteenth birthday, the foundations began to crack. Without warning, Bambo became volatile and impossible to please. And at the end of Carol’s sophomore year in college, Bambo disrupted all of her plans for the future with a declaration: they would be spending the next year abroad. What followed was the adventure of a lifetime. Though rooming with her mother didn’t exactly represent the bohemian freedom Carol had yearned for, their experiences together would teach her how much she still had to learn about the world-and force her to grow up in ways she couldn’t have anticipated. Miz Bambo tells the story of a unique mother-daughter bond, and of mysteries that will forever remain unsolved.
