The Meadows were only five miles away from our suburban Massachusetts home, but to my brother Mark and me, these low-lying acres were in a different world. It was here that our passion for the outdoors blossomed. Filled with marsh, fields, ponds and streams, the area held infinite possibilities for two young explorers. And there was mystery too. The Connecticut River, New England's largest, flowed silently, forcefully, by the edge of the Meadows, like a living being that commanded respect by its very presence. We knew little about the river; we had never been on it in a boat, never fished it, and never swam in its dark waters. It was simply too big for us. In fact, the widest point on the river's entire 409-mile length is at the Meadows. To Mark and me it was an ocean--a bit frightening, but a powerful lure nevertheless. There was one June day in particular that put the Meadows and the river in my heart forever, probably the start of the journey that led me to my quest for a cabin in the woods. So begins Mike Tougias memoir of growing up loving the woods and waters and the fields and fauna of Massachusetts.

Praise for Books by Michael J. Tougias The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard's Most Daring Sea Rescue (co-authored with Casey Sherman) "A blockbuster account of tragedy at a 'you-are-there' feel." --The Providence Journal "A gripping read!" --James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers Overboard! A True Bluewater Odyssey of Disaster and Survival "A heart-pounding account of the storm that tore apart a forty-five-foot sailboat. Author Michael Tougias is the master of the weather-related disaster book." --The Boston Globe "Overboard is a beautiful story deserving of a good cry." --Gatehouse News Service "Tougias has a knack for weaving thoroughly absorbing stories - adventure fans need this one! --Booklist Fatal Forecast: An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea "A passionately recounted peril-at-sea adventure...described with excruciating intensity. A blustery seafarer's delight, rendered with gusto." --Kirkus Reviews "Tougias spins a marvelous and terrifying yarn....this is a breathtaking book." --Los Angeles Times "Tougias's terrifying tale will stun you...leaving you breathless, exhilarated, and finally amazed." --The Providence Journal "Ernie Hazard's experiences, as related by Tougias, deserve a place as a classic of sea survival history."--The Boston Globe "Tougias spins a dramatic saga. . . . (He) has written eighteen books and this is among his most gripping." --National Geographic Adventure Magazine Ten Hours Until Dawn "The best story of peril at sea since Sebastian Junger's Perfect Storm. Superb!" --Booklist "What a story! Tougias' research and writing make the reader feel as if they are onboard the Can Do during the Blizzard of '78." --Governor Michael Dukakis "An incredible tale of heroism and sacrifice." --Nathaniel Philbrick, National Book Award Winner Selected as an American Library Association as an Editor's Choice and "Top Book of the Year" Ten Hours audio book won Audiofiles "Earphones Award." A Storm Too Soon "By depicting the event from the perspective of both the rescued and the rescuers and focusing only on key moments and details, Tougias creates a suspenseful, tautly rendered story that leaves readers breathless but well-satisfied. Heart-pounding action for the avid armchair adventurer." --Kirkus Reviews "The riveting, meticulously researched "A Storm Too Soon" tells the true-life tale of an incredible rescue" --New York Post "Tougias deftly switches from heart-pounding details of the rescue to the personal stories of the boat's crew and those of the rescue team. The result is a well-researched and suspenseful read." --Publishers Weekly "Already a maven of maritime books with Overboard! and Fatal Forecast, Tougias cinches that title here. Working in the present tense Tougias lets the story tell itself, and what a story! Any one reading (A Storm Too Soon) will laud Tougias' success." --Providence Journal
