Highly Recommended - a must read for those interested in nature and history
This book sat with me for weeks after I read it. I literally felt guilty when reading other novels because my mind was still planted deep within Lynn Schooler's latest book. His writing and his experiences touched me and took me back to a land that has always been close to my heart. His knowledge of Alaska, it's gifts and dangers along with the wildlife was incredible. His ability to tie his adventure in with the personal issues he was dealing with is unlike anything I've ever read. I rarely read books twice, but this one will be reread. I also recommend Blue Bear which he wrote prior to this.

This book shows the struggles both physical and mental that the author went through in his journey. He took a great chance to do it alone at his age, in the wilds of Alaska. He risked being injured with no one to come to his aid. A good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

What an incredible mental and emotional journey you have taken your readers (including me) on. You have taken this journey physically while I for one have had the privilege of seeing it all through your writings.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In the world of art, Thomas Kincaid has been called the “Painter of Light” and justly so. Now you have opened up a new inner perspective on my part to be ~~~ Lynn Schooler, “Master of Literary Visual Art.”
Thank you so much for Sharing

Want to be alone in the wilderness? Read this and live it.
You step into Lynn Schooler's boots when you read this book. You don't get told about it, you live it, see it like he sees it, feel it like he feels it. A first class wilderness experience with some natural history thrown in to feed your curiosity and remind you that the wild parts of our state and country are not for the timid.Was this review helpful?

Read it once for the story; then read it again for the feeling all over again. Home is where Lynn's heart is and your's will be too.
