Endo’s novels, including SILENCE, are dark and deep reflections on the human condition…
We were therefore quite surprised to stumble upon these lighthearted Japanese commercials starring the novelist, presumably undertaken in a tongue-in-cheek fashion…

When Amy and Dave Freeman learned of toxic mining proposed within the watershed of the Boundary Waters, they decided to take action—by spending a year in the wilderness, and sharing their experience through video, photos, and blogs with an audience of hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens. This book tells the deeper story of their adventure in northern Minnesota: of loons whistling under a moonrise, of ice booming as it forms and cracks, of a moose and her calf swimming across a misty lake. With the magic—and urgent message—that has rallied an international audience to the campaign to save the Boundary Waters, A Year in the Wilderness is a rousing cry of witness activism and a stunning tribute to this special region.
