My Latest Book – Whispers, Epiphanies and Intimations

whispersCoverThis book is a quintessential wilderness classic coming from the author’s quarter century of living in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, our planet’s biggest temperate rainforest.

This gargantuan rainforest (Tongass National Forest)[1] is unique in that almost all of its acreage is the thousand-and-one islands of the Alexander Archipelago. The scope of this work is largely limited to that part of the archipelago’s geography that remains untrammeled by human intrusion. The author focuses his lens on the experiences of the singular individuals who reside in the pristine beauty of the most magnificent temperate rainforest on earth. The nine stories of the book feature the spectacular geography of the islands and the author’s own twenty-five years of intriguing, dangerous, fascinating living.Carlson 006 Exploring Brownie


Mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures of unknown culture, of an ominous buzz telling you to turn on your radio and hide


A magnificent buck is seen coming down from the ridge, tremendous, unhurried, slanting and titling its head to pass the antlers through the forest under growth


The mind that seeks the deepest intellectual fulfillment does not give itself up to every passing idea. Yet what is sometimes forgotten are the larger intimation of purpose, intimations of new realities and new knowledge. Carlson 010 Our Izba

[1] The Tongass National Forest is not only the largest National Forest in the United States it is also the largest national forest in the world.
