Synopsis: "Glimpses of Wilderness" by Kevin Proescholdt shares the author's insights into the nature and value of wilderness areas. Set in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, each of the thirty essays comprising "Glimpses of Wilderness" describes an adventure drawn from Proescholdt's impressive wealth of experiences in the area, and the glimpse into the character of wilderness that it provides. Though set in Minnesota's canoe country wilderness, the perceptions and insights offered in "Glimpses of Wilderness" also pertain to all wilderness areas across the country.

Critique: Exceptionally well written and an inherently fascinating read, "Glimpses of Wilderness" is especially recommended for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in nature in general, and Minnesota's Boundary Water Canoe wilderness area in particular. Very highly recommended for community and academic library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Glimpses of Wilderness" is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99).
