In praise of Bernd Heinrich

I tuned into Maine Pubic Broadcasting’s Maine Calling show yesterday at 1 pm in order to listen to Bernd Henirich discuss his newest book (he’s published 20), The Naturalist’s Notebook: An Observation Guide and 5-Year Calendar-Journal for Tracking Changes in the Natural World Around You.

Listeners and/or readers should check out this 5 minute Vimeo that shows Bernd living in a tiny primitive camp, running and cimbing scary high trees in  Maine.  I have watched this brief video at least a dozen times over the past few years and continue to be ovewrhelmed with tears every time I revisit it.  It just happened again.

I’m headed outside to explore the woods.

About Tom Jamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, the Continental Divide Trail in 2013, the Camino Portugese (2016), and Newfoundland's East Coast Trail (2017) . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
