Novel Written in Northern Minnesota Woods to be Released at Bemidji Brewing

By Brian Kaufenberg


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to quit your job, move to northern Minnesota, and live off the grid in a tent in the woods? That is precisely what novelist Daniel J. Rice did to write his first novel, This Side of a Wilderness, which follows the story of Eli Sylvan as he “travels from the untamed mountains of Wyoming, to the wild forests of northern Minnesota […] to free himself from the constricts of society, and experience a life closer to nature.”

In the spirit of the northern Minnesota tie, Bemidji Brewing and Riverfeet Press are holding a release party for the novel and are offering a free beer with the purchase of the book. The event runs from 4-7pm on December 6 at the Bemidji Brewing Company taproom. Visit for more event details. Visit the author’s webpage for more information on This Side of a Wilderness.
