Synopsis: The Porcupine Wilderness Journals offers a unique look into the individual and collective psyches of normal, everyday people over the last half of the 20th century. Within the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, reside 16 rustic, backcountry cabins. Each cabin maintains a log book, and since the mid-1940's, people have been visiting the park, staying in the cabins, and scribing their thoughts, emotions, and creations into these books. Approximately 140 of these log books exist, totaling over 40,000 pages of hand written text. The book exerpts a multitude of entries comprised of prose, poetry, and artwork. What began as an examination of individuals within a historical context changed to a showcase for a community of strangers, all who stayed at a tiny cabin in the woods. These people share with each other, on every page of the log books, hopes and fears, triumphs and tragedies, humor and opinions, insights and experiences, togetherness and trust. Each entry is unique in its own way, howver a common message pervades throughout the books and throughout the years. Wilderness is for everyone. Everyone needs wilderness. Wilderness allows humanity to view the simple and basic of life, and thus find commonality and community with each other. Through a variety of mediums, styles, and formats, people share these experiences with each other. The Porcupine Wilderness Journals shares this collective voice with the world.
From the Author: In creating this book, I found that each person who contributed to the many log books I read helped restore my faith in humanity. People who never meet actually show profound concern, caring, and interest in the lives of others. These people share their experinces in the wilderness primeival on the pages of log books. These books come to life with each story, each drawing, each revelation, whether it be a recipe, a description of nature's beauty, a fictional tale told by the campfire, or an examination of one's own place in the world. Each entry provided me with a feeling of being part of something special, a part of the history and community the is The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park cabins.
