Treeson: An Apologia to Trees


Bill Stokes

SKU: ISBN9798359686150 Category:


Treeson is an apology to all the trees that went into making the newsprint to carry the author’s drivel to readers of the Chicago Tribune, Milwaukee Journal, Wisconsin State Journal, and Stevens Point Daily Journal of a 35-year newspaper career back when newspapers mattered. It uses some of the author’s old stories to revisit many remembered adventures ranging from a trip on the Delta Queen with Jimmy and Rosalyn, to 30-below zero in a Red Cliff deer yard.
Written in a relaxed “conversations-from-the-recliner style, Treeson takes the reader along an amazing journalistic journey that uses canoes, walking sticks, and dog sleds. It is a cruise on a memorable “ship of writing.”
