Longtime syndicated Chicago Tribune columnist John Husar knew enough about nature to appreciate both its simplicity and its mystery. He knew more than enough about the outdoors to enjoy and protect it. John approached every assignment with the zeal of his grandsons learning how to fish for the first time. A Voice in Our Wilderness reflects John's insatiable appetite for good stories. He takes readers on an intimate tour of the Midwestern land-scape and beyond while explaining that there is nobility in hunting of fishing if you indeed eat the creature you are killing. This book reflects John Husar's penchant to back up his opinions with action. He doesn't just tell readers that crow or prairie dog make good eating--he explains the best way to prepare it. When John urges readers to get involved in saving our environment, there are plenty of credentials in his quiver. He championed the bike and hiking trails of the Illinois & Michigan Canal and his columns helped convert 32,000 acres of army land into open spaces and tall-grass prairie. A Voice in Our Wilderness is organized by how a day unfolds, from morning's first light to the ghost stories we might tell around a campfire. John Husar never fretted away a moment of those days, and didn't even feel sorry for himself when his liver began to fail. He always focused on enjoying life's wonders, especially nature. John Husar's laugh and zest were contagious. So is the spirit of the timeless writings in this book's collection.
