Foreword Reviews

One Summer up North

Shoulders slumped and arms crossed, a sullen girl embarks on a wordless outdoor adventure with her parents. Inspired by Owens’s fond memories of exploring the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northern Minnesota, the book’s paneled landscapes overflow with wildlife and nature. The girl gradually embraces the beauty and potential all around her with increasing enthusiasm for fishing, hiking, and stargazing. Children will be scrambling to dust off their tents and oars to create their own memories, too.
