I'm proud to announce that my cool coworker and friend Greg, in collaboration with several other writers, has just published a collection of essays on wandering the woods and paddling the waters of Minnesota (and other lovely, unspoiled locales).
In addition to being tall and handsome, Greg is a remarkably thoughtful and articulate chap, and he writes beautifully about his love of the outdoors.
Even WG--a total tenderfoot nelly queen who has been in a canoe once in his life--bought a copy. So if you have any outdoorsy tendencies at all, go ahead and fork out a mere $12 to acquire a collection of essays and poetry that are actually worth reading.
You and I know that most of what gets published in this world is total crap. How about rewarding some people who write with real feeling and artistry?
Kind of a revolutionary concept, isn't it?
PS. I had to look it up, so I'll save you the trouble. Eskers are "long, winding ridges of stratified sand and gravel which occur in glaciated and formerly glaciated regions of Europe and North America. They are frequently several miles in length and, because of their peculiar uniform shape, somewhat resemble railroad embankments."
