Scout & Morgan Books is pleased to welcome Amy Freeman to the bookstore. Amy will share stories from her wilderness adventures in Boundary Waters. She’ll also read from her book and answer questions about her travels.

Amy and her husband Dave were named the 2014 National Geographic Adventurers of the Year. When Amy and Dave Freeman heard that toxic mining was proposed within the Boundary Waters, they decided to make their voices known by spending an entire year in the wilderness! They shared their experience with hundreds of thousands of school children and other concerned nature-lovers through video, photos, and blogs. A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters tells the deeper story of their adventure in northern Minnesota - of loons whistling under a moonrise; of ice booming as it forms and cracks; and of a moose and her calf swimming across a misty lake.

Explorers Dave and Amy Freeman have traveled over thirty thousand miles by canoe, kayak, and dogsled through some of the world’s wildest places, from the Amazon to the Arctic.
