“In clean prose that is both introspective and self-deprecating, Edwards tells the age-old story of how the wilderness has the power to transform a life.”—Anna Nair, Shelf Unbound

“Steve Edwards left Indiana for seven months of solitude in Oregon’s Rogue River Canyon. As he offered himself up to his fears, his loneliness, a pathway of heart and mindfulness opened from within to lead him through his sojourn and into this story. Quietly and clearly told, unflaggingly honest, Breaking into the Backcountry joins a growing body of contemporary writing in the American contemplative tradition. It’s a beautiful book.”—John Daniel, author of The Far Corner and Rogue River Journal
