    Jim Poling, Sr. is a lover of the outdoors, and of writing. He spent 35 years as a reporter and editor in daily journalism before retiring to write books and articles for magazines. Recently he published Smoke Signals and Tecumseh. Jim spends more than half his time at St. Nora Lake on Ontario's Haliburton-Muskoka border.

    Listen carefully and you will hear cottage country whispering lessons that can make our lives less frenetic, less complicated. The mournful call of the loon, the wind sighing in the trees, the hammering of the pileated woodpecker remind us that we are a part of a more natural world too often lost in our urban societies.

    Reflections from a still lake and a flickering campfire help us to realize that things might go easier for humankind if more issues were examined in softer, reflective light and without heated debate. People gathered at campfires, soothed by nature's tranquility, tend to listen and be more thoughtful before they speak.

    This book will bring you on a journey through four seasons of cottaging and show you that nature has a remarkable power to heal – it just needs the human race to give it a helping hand. Along the way it will introduce you to some tips and tricks for making cottage life more comfortable and enjoyable.
