Janice and Ed Schofield had a wild adventure, leaving a life of relative ease in NH to take on the challenges of Alaska. After leaving most of their worldly goods behind they headed northwest to start a new life from scratch with their dog, Max. I found the book difficult to put down; holding my interest as I learned how they lived off the land and built a log home from trees on their property. Ever resourceful, they followed their hearts to develop projects such as Janice researching and writing a book on native Alaskan plants. When they needed it the most, the money turned up to fund their projects. The friendships they developed over the years were deep and long-lasting as they contributed a great deal of time and energy to protect the environment with their activism. A good story about people you enjoy knowing to meet and spend time with. It was especially interesting to me as Janice and I taught school together for two years, before she and Ed began their new life together.
