SAM COOK COLUMN: Into the wild: Mountain men learn a lesson
We were mountain men. That's what we were. I was about 14, my brother 12. But somewhere outside of Waukesha, Wis., at a state park I never knew the name of, the two of us were off to the deep wilderness just beyond our family's camper. We had cleared this with Mom, of course. Like...
