Reader praises Tim’s book ‘Solace.’

Thanks again for entertaining us with your wit  and wisdom [at the Maine Atlantic Salmon Museum meeting of May 19th, 2017].  I just finished Solace, and can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reliving being in the North Maine Woods–‘thank you’ isn’t enough.

Dirigo Pines Hosts Allagash Tails

Tim Caverly had done several presentations at our retirement community. His stories are always something that the residents look forward to hearing. During his most recent presentation,[2/7/17] Tim talked about his book, The Ranger and the Reporter in a program he calls Cross Paths. This was the perfect story to share for Valentine’s Day because it tells how Tim met his wife, Susan. Tim and Susan are gracious guests, and the stories Tim shares are entertaining and great for a wide range of audiences.

Meredith Bay Colony Club

Feb. 23, 2017
I have had Tim Caverly at my facility [Meredith Bay Colony Club in Meredith N.H.] several times to present his original works and autobiographies. They are formatted to a big screen and Tim is extremely engaging and talented when it come to connecting with his audience. The presentations are well thought out and gives you a feeling of being in the moment. I have also interviewed Tim on my radio show called, Aging Well. My co-host is always excited when we are going to have him back on the show. There is a certain element of anticipation that leaves you wanting to hear more after seeing a presentation or hearing him talk about life as a park ranger. In closing, I would highly recommend one of Tim Caverly’s programs for any organization that facilitates history, community enrichment, or the arts.

Review by Quoddy Tides

Caverly takes readers to the North Woods by J.D. Rule Quoddy Tides Jan. 27, 2017
It is tough to describe a story told at 20 degrees below zero as “heart warming,” but many of Tim Caverly’s tales in his new book, The Ranger and the Reporter, are just that. From the Extraction of an ice-bound heart attack victim—-with a happy ending—-the breaking up of a back-country fistfight, to the rescue of an antique steam locomotive, Caverly’s stories all are in the North Maine Woods and are told in the dry, matter-of-fact manner of one who was there.
Caverly, the author of the “Allagash Tails” series is a former Maine park ranger and supervisor with extensive experience in the Allagash region. He draws on personal recollections and legends to take the reader to places where only a few would care to venture but many are curious about.

Allagash Haunting at Phillips-Strickland House

I have very much enjoyed your slide presentation[s] and the story of the Allagash Haunting! Our residents really enjoyed and stayed eagerly attentive to the program. It was a lot of fun and we will have you back another time for another story. We have a collection of your books started in our library. Thank you so much for another great wilderness program.

Tim Caverly is a fantastic speaker. His presentations will capture the adventurer, the historian and the lover of the outdoors. Caverly brings a sense of humor that others in his line of work seem to overlook. If your searching for a show that will teach you a thing or two, keep you on the edge of your seat and give you some good laughs, Tim Caverly’s programs are for you!
