Phillips_Border coverMartha Greene Phillips will be at the University of Minnesota Duluth Library on Tuesday, November 14 at noon for a reading and presentation of her new book, Border Country: The Northwoods Canoe Journals of Howard Greene, 1906-1916.


Border Country is a collection of the remarkable, handmade journals from businessman Howard Greene’s early 1900s canoe trips to the north woods of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Canada. Reproduced with numerous photographs and maps, these journals are a window into a world at once familiar and strange, the wilderness caught on the verge of becoming the North Woods we know today.


"Howard Greene’s narratives are not only a grand adventure but a rare glimpse of life along northern waterways during the early 1900s. His superb photographs have a haunting quality that betrays the radical environmental and social change that was to come. You can almost hear Kent Ryden’s ‘quiet human voices whispering in the landscape.’" —Mary Graves, chief of Cultural and Natural Resources, Voyageurs National Park
