The St. Croix River offers solitude and solace, scenery and diverse species, and sunshine and sand.
The year 2020 made those qualities even more valuable.
This collection of essays and scattering poems, written from winter through late fall, follows adventures on the water and on the bluffs, tracing the year’s uncertain arc. The stories are found on foot, paddling a canoe or kayak, and by boat.
These words are an ode to the river, the many living things that call it home — and a priceless place for many people.
The St. Croix provides respite, reassurance, and awe all year long. River of Refuge lets you experience it any time you open the book.
Your purchase supports publishing more river stories that inspire stewardship.
We are currently using a “print-on-demand” service called Lulu to produce the book. This means you order directly from Lulu.com at this link, and your book will be printed and shipped as soon as possible. We hope to soon stock the book in local shops.
