Sigurd F. Olson Journal Entries
The Singing Wilderness.
The Singing Wilderness, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1956, was Sigurd Olson’s first book, and it was immensely successful, becoming a classic of American nature writing. For Sigurd himself, it was the culmination of a long and hard-fought dream. The journal entries and letters below, along with excerpts from A Wilderness Within: The Life of Sigurd F. Olson, tell the story. I recommend reading the items in the order listed.
