“There is a special feeling to the Allagash; a sense of adventure, the thrill of getting away from it all!” says Tim Caverly. “But in the dark of night there is something else. A shadow lingers, hiding beyond the reach of the lantern’s fingers of light. It remains obscure in the midst of the evergreens and old growth. Among the campfires and s’mores, a bone chilling draft embraces all. Shivering, we draw our coats tighter to protect against the rawness . . .” Tim Caverly will bring his stories and his new book, “The Ranger and The Reporter,” to the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner program on Thursday evening, May 18 at 6:30 pm.
Tim Caverly has spent his life in Maine’s outdoors. Growing up shadowing his father who was a fire warden with the Maine Forest Service and his brother, a ranger in Baxter State Park, it was natural for him to seek a career in the outdoors. Originally from Skowhegan Maine, Tim obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Maine at Machias, and worked as a state parks ranger and as a regional supervisor of the Allagash Region. After a 32-year career Tim retired to Millinocket, Maine and now writes and presents programs full time throughout New England, enjoys raising Golden Retrievers, and sharing stories about the Maine woods.
Join Tim on Thursday, May 18 as he weaves tales of the Maine wilderness. Storytelling Dinners are held on Thursday evenings at the Corner House Inn in Sandwich, NH from late October through May. Dinner begins at 6:30 pm and the cost is $21.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. For more information and reservations contact the Corner House Inn at (603)284-6219 or online at email@example.com.
