Description:

"In Erratic North, Mark Frutkin has written a spirited, personal meditation on those who reject war and insist on peace. Erratic North is a beautifully written memoir about an American draft dodger who flees to the backwoods of Quebec to escape service in the Vietnam War, and who finds himself - and his true community - in the process. It is part travelogue, part nature writing, part anti-war tract, and entirely magical in its lyricism, soulfulness, and intelligence."--BOOK JACKET.
