Yonder: Tales From an Outdoor Life

Appearance Date: 10/29/2022

Written and collected over the last 20 years, Ron Ellis has been fortunate to bring back tales from his time while wandering “out there” with like-minded companions, always moving toward “yonder,” and, sometimes, if we were very lucky, just a bit beyond.
