Winter on Diamond: An encounter with the Temagami Wilderness Soren Bondrup-Nielsen 2004 ISBN 9780973632101 Res Telluris Book Publishers
Winter on Diamond is the story of two young men who winter deep in the Temagami Wilderness, neighbouring with whiskey-jacks and the tall red pines. It is the remembrance of a fifty-year old biologist who discovered the power in life by lifting his feet one snowshoe-step at a time across a season of cold. Winter on Diamond, redefines the meaning of adventure, where the surprise is not the danger encountered but the impact experienced. No longer is it necessary to conquer mountains. Sometimes it’s more powerful to rest in a cabin with your closest friend, eat bannock, cut firewood, play cribbage, feed the red black vole that befriends you and trek through the cold night mesmerized by an outburst of stars.
