This monthly gathering is designed for book-lovers and nature enthusiasts. Every month we'll discuss a book about the environment, nature, or related topics. The books will be both non-fiction and fiction, covering a broad range of environmental issues. A diversity of viewpoints will be represented. The discussions are sure to be lively and informative!

Runes of the North by Sigurd Olson. In this collection of writing, Sigurd Olson expresses his feelings about the haunting appeal of the wilderness and of the tales and legends to be found there. His runes are reflections drawn from the great northern vastness of Canada and Alaska. 
The book is divided into two sections: one, “Le Beau Pays,” reveals woodland lore of the land of big timber, rushing white water streams, and “lost” lakes of the Canadian border. The other, “Pays d’en Haut,” has for the setting of its chapters the wilderness farther north, from Hudson Bay across the Barren Grounds and tundra to the Yukon and Alaska. Thousands of readers have found Olson to be a kindred spirit who puts into words their own deep feelings about nature.
