Mountain Man Insights have appeared continuously since February 5, 2006 on page B2 of the Berkshire Eagle. Over the years they have developed an intensely loyal following of Berkshire Eagle readers. Thousands of the readers turn to the day’s Insight first thing on receiving their paper, for a good laugh, a new perspective on some aspect of life, and for inspiration. The Mountain Man Insights have become the single most popular daily non-news feature in the Berkshire Eagle.
