About this Book:

There is nothing that outdoors columnist John Holyoke loves more than a good story. In his first book, Evergreens, Holyoke shares a curated collection of his favorite essays featuring people who are passionate about the outdoors, as well as his memorable encounters with creatures—from salmon to deer to moose to squirrels—that fascinate and confound him. Sprinkled throughout are memories of the events that have shaped him as he recounts the benefits of spending time with friends in the woods, fields, and waters of Maine. As Holyoke says, “I am here to take you on an adventure. Along the way, you’re welcome to laugh, or cry, or smile, or reach for the phone to call an old friend and tell them that they still matter.”

"The stories in Evergreens reflect Holyoke’s approach to writing and life, incorporating compassion, humor, curiosity and relationships. It isn’t a 'hook and bullet' book, Holyoke said. Readers don’t have to be experts on the outdoors to appreciate it: The stories are centered more around people than animals."
––The Piscataquis Observer
