    1. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the U.P is easily one of my favorite areas around, and within that, the Keweenaw Peninsula. On a clear day, standing on the Keweenaw and looking across the sparkling mirror of Lake Superior, one can just see the outline of Isle Royale on the horizon. Somehow, getting there has long evaded me, even as I have lived on and now often travel to the Keweenaw to rejuvenate my spirit. That must change, and soon—and so, in that effort to at last make that wilderness advent [...]

    3. Vic does a great job making the reader feel as if he was right there, experiencing the adventures. I could hear the twigs cracking under my feet while walking along the paths of Isle Royale as I was reading. My heart was in my throat more than once, and if I didn't know for sure that the author and his buddy Ken are still alive, I would have been very worried about them during the title story of the book.You'll experience a full range of emotions during while reading these true stories--loving t [...]

    4. Foerster's first book contains both first person narratives as well as third person accounts. This is non-fiction wilderness writing. My favorites included Foerster's recounting of his brother-in-law sea kayaking from Isle Royale to Dollar Bay, the rescue of a family caught in a canoe off the shore of Eagle River, and a first-person account of hiking from Lac La Belle around the Keewenaw Point during Michigan Tech's spring break.

    5. Put this book in your backpack you head out to the island. I'd meant to read it beforehand but time got away from me so I ended up stashing it in the top of my backpack before a 6-day trek at the end of July. I read it every night in the shelters, then retold the stories the next day to the five women I was hiking with. Forrester's voice is quiet yet clear, and somehow perfectly reflects the island's own personality.

    6. haven't read much adventure in a while, but i spent a couple weeks up in the keweenaw this year and got this book to motivate me to get to isle royale. not the best writing ever, but heart felt and at times dramatic enough that I couldn't put it down. it is a work of love undeniably.

    7. I like wilderness and adventure stories, so I've read a lot, and this one is great. Clear, concise prose - lush descriptions of the island, lake and its wildlife. There's humor, sorrow, and even suspense. The author just nails it. It's also a fairly thin volume - good to tuck in your backpack.

    8. I loved this book. Reminded me of "A Walk In the Woods" by Bill Bryson. Several short stories of Vic' and Ken's adventures on Isle Royale . It gave a good imaginative impression of the Isle with much humor.
