Cache Lake Country

Cache Lake Country

 A record of life in the great North Woods, which provides nature lovers with an abundance of information on woodcraft and the outdoors.
Encounters With the Archdruid

Encounters With the Archdruid

by John McPhee

Encounters with the Archdruid (1971) is a narrative nonfiction book by author John McPhee. Encounters is split into three parts, each covering environmentalist David Brower's confrontations with his ideological enemies. The book chronicles his struggles against miners, developers and finally the United States Bureau of Reclamation. McPhee blurs traditional journalism—the reporting of facts and accounting of events, with thematic elements more common to fiction.
