"We do not own these woods. They own us" - Timothy Goodwin
"(This book) is arresting, like the wee lesson at the end of an Aesop's fable. All who spend time in the woods ... will deeply appreciate this book." - Minneapolis Star Tribune
“In Within These Woods Dr. Tim Goodwin has woven together a tapestry sure to delight those who seek a deeper understanding of the North Country. The science is sound, the writing evocative, and the illustrations add a touch of personal artistry. But it is the love of place, a love that many will share and find so beautifully expressed, that ties everything together and makes this volume a treasure for any cabin book shelf. It will have a place on mine.” -Douglas Wood
Goodwin's book is an intimate journey into the Northwoods. As a biologist, musician and artist, he explores the diversity of life, from flora to fauna, who live in the forest near his cabin in the woods. A teacher of Biology and Ecology with the Minnesota Universities, this book is truly like walking through the woods with a good friend who has a scientific eye and the soul of an artist. Includes 60 original illustrations by the author.
