Cheers for Compass Season
Breana Roy, Northern Wilds, October, 2019
"Eloquently written by Grand Marais resident John Bragstad, we are reminded to slow down and appreciate the world around us; to view nature using all five senses."
Brian Larsen, Cook County News-Herald
"For John Bragstad, the woods, water, plants, animals - the whole of nature is his compass, and he captures it beautifully in his thoroughly terrific book Compass Season."
"A quintessential poet, John’s prose comes through on each and every page. For fans that enjoy great writing, especially of the Northland, this would make an excellent Christmas present."
Rhonda Myrmel, Minneapolis Star-Tribune
"Compass Season by North Shore resident John Bragstad, a collection of 40 seasonal short stories and 'a gem of a book.'"
