Praise for Our National Forests: Stories from America’s Most Important Public Lands

“This beautifully illustrated and gracefully written book demonstrates how vital these complex landscapes and their fraught place in US environmental culture are.”
Char Miller, Pomona College, author of America’s Great National Forests, Wildernesses, and Grasslands

“Greg brings decades of lived and professional experience to bear in this outstanding narrative. With both historic and personal references in the sweeping arch of thoughtful natural resource management, this remarkable book offers a practical guide to encourage conscientious environmental stewardship for all to follow.”
James Edward Mills, author and National Geographic Explorer

“In Greg Peters’s hands, the subject of the United States National Forests comes alive as a history of America, at turns humbling and tragic, but ultimately an inspiring reminder of the incredible resource that is our public lands.”
Brendan Leonard, author of The Camping Life and Surviving the Great Outdoors

Standup Paddling Montana

Standup Paddling Montana is the first and only SUP-specific paddling guide for Montana.

Covering more than 75 different water bodies including lakes and rivers, Standup Paddling Montana is the best resource for exploring Montana’s incredible standup paddling opportunities.

Special sections focus on paddling in Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Glacier National Park.

The guide is also packed with great photographs from my decade-plus of paddling Montana’s waters.

I also developed a companion website with basic information for Montana’s standup paddlers to help create a culture of safe and responsible paddling.
