A charming and delightful reminiscence of growing up loving the woods, waters, fields, and fauna of Massachusetts by Michael Tougias, New York Times bestselling author of The Finest Hours, Overboard!, and Fatal Forecast. Untamed. Unsupervised. Uncontrolled. Boyhood in the 1960s and ‘70s was a time for exploration and mischief. Author Michael Tougias found more than his share of misadventures in the woods and on the water: some life-threatening, but others innocently hilarious. Over time—and after reading a multitude of adventure books—these experiences took shape in his quest to be a mountain man, owning a cabin in the forest and living off the land. Part of that dream would come true, but only after a family tragedy that shook his world and forced changes in his life. This is also a story of a complex and strained relationship between father and son, the efforts at understanding, and ultimately respect and devotion. In The Waters Between Us Tougias channels Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods to mix laugh out loud humor with insight into the natural world through the eyes of a curious boy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I loved it! Tougias’s wonderful memoir celebrates a time before cell phones and social media cluttered our lives; when a kid could drape a fishing rod across the handlebars of his bike and find high adventure in the woods and streams around him.” Stephen Sautner, author of Fish On, Fish Off
“More than just another outdoors book, Michael explores the complex and often challenging relationship between a father and son that any father or son can relate to. This book will make you smile, laugh and nod your head in agreement.” Tom Reed, author of Give Me Mountains for My Horses
“A song of praise to the outdoors, an apology for boyhood misunderstandings, and a loving appreciation for a father whose grace, joy and kindness remained steadfast in the face of tragedy.” Sy Montgomery, New York Times bestselling author
