Mike front page

On Saturday, July 16th Mike will be here launching his latest book, we will have some available for sale.

Nebooktook, which in the Mi’kmaw language means “in the woods”, is an eclectic mix of history, heritage, ideology, nostalgia, philosophy, poetry, and prose. Set in Nova Scotia, the more than three hundred early twentieth century images appearing here could just as easily have been taken in any number of wilderness areas stretching from the Adirondacks to the Rockies. The book’s message is equally timeless and universal, spanning centuries and drawing upon scores of voices from a variety of disciplines and professions. Nebooktook is meant to be reflective, introspective, meditative and thought-provoking, celebrating the traditions, natural beauty and intrinsic values of our woods and waters while decrying the calculated, self gratifying attitudes, doctrines, and practices that wantonly destroy and pollute the land, poison the water and foul the air in the name of progress and pursuit of the omnipotent dollar.

COMING SOON MIKE PARKER’S LATEST BOOK “NEBOOKTOOK”

Posted by in News | April 07, 2016

COMING SOON    MIKE PARKER’S LATEST BOOK “NEBOOKTOOK”

Mike front page

 

Mike will be launching his newest book at Milford House this summer.  The exact date is yet to be determined, but keep an eye out for it in June or early July.

Primitive wilderness places today are more “visionary” than “actual”. The call of the loon is being muted by the industrial roar of “men who dig up and tear down and destroy.” Purveyors of destruction go about pillaging and plundering the land with seeming impunity and a methodical efficiency mastered from years of practice and the benefit of modern technology. Newspaper headlines bemoaning a myriad of environmental concerns and issues appear almost daily as beleaguered politicians and bureaucrats, entrusted to responsibly manage natural resources and safeguard the environment, are taken to task. The mantra remains predictably the same from both government and industry – well rehearsed scripts touting jobs won or the threat of jobs lost too often overriding responsible stewardship. All of which leaves one wondering if long term need will some day win out over short term greed and if common sense will ever prevail over dollars and cents?

Set in Nova Scotia, the more than three hundred early twentieth century images appearing here could just as easily have been taken in any number of wilderness areas stretching from the Adirondacks to the Rockies.

Brian Cottam and Kelly Westhaver, of Wild Lupin Media, made this video of our “Sod-Turning Event” during our Share Holders Weekend. Almost 100 neighbors, guests, friends, and family joined us on a beautiful fall afternoon to celebrate the start of our rebuild.  We will start rebuilding soon and hoping to get the new Lodge closed in before too much snow, we will be ready for our opening weekend next May.
 
We have had a great summer in spite of the fire and hurricane Arthur, we have been using the Community Hall as our dining room, good food, good friends all is good.
