Paddling to Winter

"The book is action-packed and lively, and the journey is incredible." — Laurie Hertzel, Star Tribune

“Want to test the strength of your marriage? Then do what Julie Buckles did and go on a year-long canoe honeymoon from your backyard on Lake Superior to Wollaston Lake in Saskatchewan. It’s a remarkable story told with humor and beauty.” — Erika Janik, Wisconsin Public Radio

"This is a beautifully written book, very much like Cheryl Strayed's 'Wild' but with a couple confronting the obstacles of the wilderness together." — Jerome Gary, filmmaker

“Once a self-proclaimed city girl, Buckles recounts how she fell in love with Ray, an outdoorsman, and learned to thrive in the wilderness. Her sharp, witty prose brings the expedition to life with humor and passion in a story of love and discovery that will relate to all readers.” — Conor Mihell, Canoe & Kayak Magazine
