Winter's Song is beautifully presented, thought provoking and it should be treasured. It will definitely find a place on my bookshelf.
Winter's Song offers to take the reader into the northern areas of the Midwest and introduces them to people who have a love affair with winter. It's not the mediocre climates of winter that other parts of the United States experience, but the harsh and unforgiving brutality that mother nature bestows to Northerners, giving them an opportunity to learn from and to appreciate the adversity of a most challenging season. Often times, winter is described as otherworldly by the people of the northern regions, but it has been said that this season of snow, cold and bone chilling winds has also influenced and largely shaped them into the people they are. A nod to spring, summer and autumn; also welcomed when they take their turn on the stage, but winter, one could argue, has many more dramatic and interesting stories in its wonderous archives. Mischke delivers to us stories that are rich in childhood memories, cultural references, spiritual beliefs as it all relates to winter and humor is also found within the pages of Winter's Song. He has a special knack in going deeper into what it means to be human and in our relationship to nature. He gives us winter and invites us to welcome her for all that she is. Her harshness and beauty await within Winter's Song. Tommy Mischke is a long-time radio personality in the Twin Cities of Minnesota who now hosts a podcast, The Road Show- Life All Over the Map. I've listened to him for years and have always been impressed with his intellect, his take on life, his interactions with others and his humor. What he has offered down through the years is highly enjoyable, interesting and addictingly infectious. Winter's Song is beautifully presented, thought provoking and it should be treasured. It will definitely find a place on my bookshelf. This is a Must Read!
I give Winter's Song 5 out of 5 stars.
