Personal and simple, earthy and warm—recipes and stories from the Steger Wilderness Center in Minnesota’s north woodsWill and Rita Mae Steger will join the bookstore at Piragis Northwoods Company for a meet and greet and signing of their new book, The Steger Homestead Kitchen: Simple Recipes for an Abundant Life, on Saturday, July 16 at 2:00 p.m. 

This is an inspiring and down-to-earth collection of meals and memories gathered at the Homestead, the home of Arctic explorer and environmental activist Will Steger, located in Minnesota’s north woods. Interwoven with dozens of mouth-watering recipes—for simple, hearty meals shared around home chefs’ own homestead tables—are Steger’s exhilarating stories of epic adventures exploring the Earth’s most remote regions.

"This transporting collection, which Steger wrote with his niece Rita Mae Steger and local cookbook author Beth Dooley, is as much a cookbook as it is an argument for eating whole, clean, and local during a time of environmental strife." —Star Tribune

"Will is arguably the world’s greatest living explorer. Now, with The Steger Homestead Kitchen, he and his niece Rita Mae explore with us the power of eating locally and sustainably, and in the society of others. This gorgeous book should have a place in everyone’s kitchen—or on every coffee table." —Dan Buettner

"Whether we are huddled together in a small tent or gathered around a big table, food gives us warmth, nourishment, and community. This book is so much more than a collection of recipes: it shares wisdom gained over a remarkable lifetime of exploration and offers a timely reminder in the era of climate change that a little can go a long way." —Eric Dayton, cofounder and CEO, Askov Finlayson (and Will Steger’s teammate on Arctic Transect 2004)
