Cottage in the Woods: One Teachers Journey of Discovery from the Alaska Bush to the Oregon Outbackby John Petersen
Cottage in the Woods, creative nonfiction, is based on a combination of journal entries, experiences, oral histories, and stories from the Oregon Outback to Bush Alaska. Cottage in the Woods points out the wisdom each of us has, and potential existing for all of us to gather insight from one another. Cottage in the Woods demonstrates a philosophy focusing on finding strength within to enjoy life and what it brings--good or bad--to find our "Cottage in the Woods." In the rugged Alaska wilderness a near-death experience forces John Alexander to realize that he may lose the love of his life as well as his own. In the death-chill of an Alaska winter John realizes his only chance to survive is from the wisdom of people he would not normally listen to. People from every walk of life he met provide help along the trail to find his own Cottage in the Woods. The reader will walk away with a much deepened insight and appreciation for the value of self and others after reading this book.
