Santa Cruz Sentinel: "Good food made simple"

Personal and simple, earthy and warm—recipes and stories from the Steger Wilderness Center in Minnesota’s north woodsEach chapter includes Will’s stories about his adventures as an Arctic explorer, along with tales from his childhood. (He recalls chasing his mother’s frozen pie as it skittered down an icy Alaskan runway when the supply plane arrived.)

It all underscores the Steger Wilderness Center’s dedication to living in a carbon-neutral way while enjoying the abundance of nature. Every recipe is simple, straightforward, and worthy of a table in the back woods or in a city apartment.
