“A beautiful tribute to the Upper Peninsula, Wurdock’s poetry and
photographs combine to make this a lovely, inspiring look at the hidden
– and obvious – beauty of Michigan’s U.P.”

Grand Rapids Press

“Peter Wurdock's exquisite photographs and moving words combine
beautifully to create an aesthetic that is extremely unique and rare in this
fast paced world and reality we all find ourselves currently living in the
21st century. Places I Hide is a wonderful oasis of beauty and
contemplation, and it beckons all to come and sit awhile to see and feel
the real beauty of this world.”

“Between the Cottages" is short, just 44 pages of pictures and text giving
a brief history of family and of summer life at Assembly Park, a 214-

“"In Bending Water and Stories Nearby, Peter Wurdock has infused new life
into the literary landscape with a collection of short stories that are reminiscent
of the pioneering narratives of Hemingway’s Nick Adams stories, avoiding the
pitfalls of the derivative by plotting a course through the rough, unpredictable,
and often isolated terrain of Michigan’s natural splendor, populated with
characters wrestling with emotive realization in a voice that is as equally
fresh as it is contemporary."

"Possessing a gift for concise, laconic, and lyrical prose, Wurdock fashions
together a series of vignettes embracing the overwhelming density of the
forests that often confines these characters to the haunting echoes of their
past and leads both character and reader to the light of realization and
epiphany that ultimately sets them free, for better or worse, in a manner
that is worthy of such literary landmarks and meditations on small town
life as Sherwood Andersen’s Winesburg, Ohio."
