Garrett Conover is best known for his 28 years as co-proprietor of North Woods Ways, LLC , the classically resonant traditional canoe and snowshoe guiding service leading wilderness trips in Maine, Quebec, and Labrador. In 2008 he started work as one of the Assistant Managers of Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary. Garrett is author of Beyond the Paddle. His most recent book, Kristin’s Wilderness, has won four awards. The Snow Walker’s Companion was co-authored with Alexandra Conover, and is now in its third printing. Garrett lives along the Big Wilson Stream in Maine, a scant few miles from and in the same watershed as Borestone Mountain. Writing and photography are continuing interests, and Garrett remains in demand as a presenter of adventure travel shows.
