true life story of how this city boy came to live 100 miles deep
in the Canadian wilderness; how I mastered homesteading and an off-grid
self-sufficient lifestyle in Maine in preparation for the move to the
bush. Join me for
an eclectic blend of story telling ranging from my adventures of
bicycling across the United States to my winter thru hike of the 2100+
mile long Appalachian Trail.
Experience the terror of being surrounded by
wildfire and being touched by a bear. Discover what life is like
working in a remote exploration camp. Enjoy first hand accounts of some
of the most breathtaking wildlife encounters. Entertaining and
enlightening, the narrative is at times amusing while at other times
harrowing. Appealing to readers with an outdoors, adventurous
spirit; people with an off-grid, self-sufficiency bent, as well as the
“dreamers” content to read about adventure, I hope to inspire others to
“take the road less traveled."
The book is supplemented with about 100 images which have been
carefully selected to visually reinforce the text.
About the author:

adult years living the homestead dream. Published in Backhome magazine,
Small Farmer's Journal, and Countryside and Small Stock Journal, they
also appear in LIfe Off Grid,
a film and book about people living off grid throughout Canada.
