A wordless picture-book journey through the Boundary Waters, canoeing and camping with a family as they encounter the northwoods wilderness in all its spectacular beautyJohn Owens will be at Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery on Saturday, July 31 at 1:00 p.m. for a signing of his new book, One Summer Up North.

Come along to a place of wordless wonder: the wilderness of the Boundary Waters on the Minnesota-Canada border. Join a family of three as their journey unfolds, picture by picture, marking the changing light as the day passes, the stillness before the gathering storm, the shining waters everywhere, rushing here, quietly pooling there, beckoning us ever onward into nature’s infinite wildness one summer up north.

"Debut author Owens uses no words in these pages, and readers won’t miss them—digitally colored pencil illustrations, with their impressionistic touches of color, texture, and shape, exude a plainspoken eloquence. He adeptly portrays both big geographic expanses and wholly intimate moments of an affectionate family free from everyday distractions." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"One Summer Up North depicts the beauty and serenity of the Boundary Waters. Whether it’s your first trip or 100th trip, it’s always a journey worth taking." —Northern Wilds 

"By the end of the thirty-page book, the child does not want to leave the experience. What a perfect set to give to a young one to whom all this is brand new." —The Ely Echo
