Border Country: The Quetico-Superior Wilderness

Tom Klein, Author, Nadine Blacklock, Author, Craig Blacklock, Author Northsound Music Group $35 (180p) ISBN 978-0-942802-82-5
Border country is 2.3 million acres of designated wildernessoriginal, unspoiled America. Here, in 130 breathtaking photos (well printed on high quality paper), the Blacklocks, who conduct nature photography workshops at the University of Minnesota, present their skillful, carefully composed views of the lakes, rivers, lichen-covered cliffs and lovely forests of Minnesota's Northeast corner, the ``Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness,'' which extends up into Ontario's Quetico Park. Writer Klein (Loon Magic) offers a lively discourse on border country; he describes its legislative and geographical history, its flora and fauna, the trappers and traders of its past, and the heroic conservation efforts that culminated in President Carter's 1978 signing of a bill that, it is hoped, will preserve this singular area forever.
