Happy Reading!

My name is David Charles and I’m a writer and outdoor instructor. (Read a longer bio here.)

Every Friday I send good people like you my near legendary newsletter. You can read (and even search) past emails from the full archive on Substack.

There are 600+ posts on this blog. That’s more than 510,000 words so if you need some help getting started, try one of these for size –

Or browse stories by category or year of publication here.

I also publish another semi-regular newsletter about reading called Books Make Books.
