A Northwoods Companion is the information jump-starter needed by visitors and residents alike to recognize the natural cycles and events of the Northwoods. Each chapter covers a two week period, and provides sketches of hatchings, fledgings, birthings, breedings, flowerings, fruitings, and other natural events. The author describes the whens, whys, wheres, and hows of observing the natural world. These highly useful guides contain nearly 280 entries. A cornucopia of topics are covered, from the blooming of spring flora, to the singing and breeding of frogs, to the nest building of eagles, to the enormous hatch of mosquitoes, to essays on canoeing.
