Harrowing, hilarious, and tender, 10,000 Days in the Woods shows how forestry was Russ Richardson’s calling. Yet more than the early-career memoir of one eager and intrepid forester, the tales captured here reveal a time and place that might otherwise remain hidden deep in the woods forever. For anyone yearning for more time spent outdoors — or for an unvarnished account of American forestry in the 1970s — this is a wonderful, insightful and thoroughly enjoyable read.
“It was the perfect read last weekend. I laughed out loud several times and learned so much from the stories.”
