2014 Next Generation Indie Book Award Winner

Reporter Julie Buckles tells the story of a year-long canoe honeymoon traveling the Voyageur Highway from Lake Superior to Wollaston Lake where she and her new groom stayed for the winter. Filled with humor, love, adventure, and as one reviewer notes -- characters worthy of a Coen Brothers film. 

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

"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, producer of "Pumping Iron"

“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

“Equal parts adventure yarn and marriage manual. This is an amazing book, sure to appeal avid paddlers, of course, but just as sure to appeal to anyone who has ever had trouble understanding the vows of matrimony.”— Peter Geye, author of THE LIGHTHOUSE ROAD
