Evergreens: A Collection of Maine Outdoor Stories by John Holyoke

There is nothing that outdoors columnist John Holyoke loves more than a good story. In his first book, Evergreens, Holyoke shares a curated collection of his favorite essays featuring people who are passionate about the outdoors, as well as his memorable encounters with creatures―from salmon to deer to moose to squirrels―that fascinate and confound him. Sprinkled throughout are memories of the events that have shaped him as he recounts the benefits of spending time with friends in the woods, fields, and waters of Maine. As John says, “I am here to take you on an adventure. Along the way, you're welcome to laugh, or cry, or smile, or reach for the phone to call an old friend and tell them that they still matter.”
