Ms. Byl recounts her experiences working as a "traildog" -- maintaining wilderness trails many of us enjoy. It's backbreaking work with long hours, low pay and at times, miserable conditions. But Byl's love of the outdoors and a strong work ethic clearly shine through in her prose, giving the reader insight to a world full of drudgery and endless hard labor but also a life lived in close proximity to the land, much the way our ancestors existed. This book is a love affair with tools -- axes, chainsaws and the like -- with a view into a world not many women inhabit. The first half of the book details her experiences in Glacier National Park in Montana, while the latter half encompasses Alaska and the Denali region. An entertaining and interesting read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
